Sibelius - Symphony No. 2

Friday, March 29, 2019

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

Hannibal completes his tenure as composer-in-residence with the world premiere of Healing Tones, a hymn for the City of Brotherly Love. He's spent the past two years immersing himself in Philadelphia, collecting inspiration, texts, and music from all walks of life. Given his past triumphs here (including One Land, One River, One People), Hannibal's new piece is sure to enthrall. Yannick continues his complete cycle of the Sibelius symphonies with the Second. Seen as an appeal to Finnish patriotism at a time of Russian oppression, it remains the composer's most popular symphony.
