Seattle Symphony: Sibelius Symphony No. 1
Garrick Ohlsson, piano
Sergei Rachmaninoff — Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini Op. 43
Jean Sibelius — Symphony No. 1 in E minor, Op. 39
The Seattle Symphony shines a spotlight on the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius with the composer’s impressive First Symphony. Sibelius wrote perhaps the greatest ‘First’ ever — packed with transcendent soundscapes. A new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Ellen Reid responds to Sibelius, and Garrick Ohlsson performs Rachmaninov’s bravura Rhapsody.
