Duration To be advised.

Vladimir Ashkenazy, the Sydney Symphony and Sibelius - it's a winning combination. You won't hear better than this!

At the end of our Sibelius Festival in 2004, Vladimir Ashkenazy told the audience: "I have never heard Sibelius played better!" That festival has become the stuff of legend - the excitement in the hall, the glowing performances. Now it's time to revisit Finland's musical hero, and the high point of this program is a thrilling set of legends about a Finnish hero, Lemminkäinen. He's young, handsome and reckless, and there's music to match.

In the first half of the concert Ashkenazy builds on a watery theme, with La Mer - Debussy's musical sketches of the ocean in all its dangers and delights. And he begins with Fauré's gentle music for a play about doomed lovers.
