Journey to classical and Finnish worlds

»Today I saw 16 swans. One of the greatest moments of my life«, wrote Jean Sibelius in 1914 - an experience that he sonically captured in his Fifth Symphony. Beginning inconspicuously, he elevates his famous »swan theme« to majestic dimensions. He struggled mightily with the writing, for which he needed three attempts. Ravel had a similar experience with the second movement of his Piano Concerto, a flowing melody »reminiscent of Mozart, the Mozart of the clarinet quintet ..., the most beautiful piece he wrote«, according to the composer himself. Haydn, in turn, had Prokofiev in mind when he composed his »Symphonie classique«, a humorous and subtle play on techniques from the past.
