The Orchestra enjoys a historic connection with the great Finnish master Jean Sibelius--Stokowski led the U.S. premieres of his last three symphonies. Rattle conducts the final two, together without interruption. Musical mega-star and Curtis graduate Lang Lang performs Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto, a revolutionary work that foreshadowed the Romantic era in music. Plus a kinetic work by young American composer Andrew Norman. The title "Unstuck" refers to the moment when he overcame writers block and began composing at a furious pace.
