About this Performance
The cool of the Arctic Circle meets the warmth of Ancient Greece in this colorful program led by the debut of Dalia Stasevska. This trailblazing conductor and unwavering activist will take the listener on a profound musical journey.

Hear the chirping of artic birds in Rautavaara’s concerto featuring recordings of nature’s vocalists alongside one of Sibelius’ best-known symphonies, showcasing his Scandanavian roots. Bernstein also takes the wisdom of Plato and translates his ancient dialogue into a conversation between violin and orchestra, featuring violinist James Ehnes.
