Pre-Concert Talk: Summer Nights & Winter Storms

Pre-Concert Talk: Summer Nights & Winter Storms

This talk by Professor Daniel Grimley introduces Sibelius’s life and work and locates him within the rich artistic and cultural contexts of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Finland and Scandinavia. His recurrent themes and preoccupations will be explored alongside his relationship with broader European culture and aesthetics.
