Symphony No. 3
Seven Early Songs
Symphony No. 2
Jean Sibelius composed his second and third symphonies at the dawn of the 20th century. The optimistic opening and closing movements of the second symphony shine a light on the national hopes of Finns in the midst of Russian repression. In the same decade, Alban Berg composed songs from which he selected seven to perform with an orchestra. Soprano Hanna-Elisabeth Müller is opening the doors of the world’s leading opera houses one after another.
