The Lost Chord - June 18: Sibelius, Incidentally

Jun 18, 2017

Jean Sibelius was the composer of seven authorized symphonies that stand like granitic monoliths at the heart of 20th century music.  Less well known, perhaps, is the abundant incidental music he composed for the theatre.  Join Ross Amico for an historic 1932 recording of selections written for the play “Belshazzar’s Feast,” with Robert Kajanus conducting, and a more recent, digital premiere of the complete incidental music composed for “Everyman,” made under the baton of Osmo Vänskä.  Enjoy this neglected-but-worthwhile music, Sunday at 10 pm.
