Audience favorite Dalia Stasevska returns to conduct music from Scotland and Finland. Sibelius is considered a Finnish national treasure and his captivating Fifth Symphony is among his most admired works. Lauri Porra, whose family traces their roots back to Sibelius, presents his own concerto for electric bass. The program begins with Nautilus, a work from Scottish composer and sound artist Anna Meredith that has been described as a “composition of pure maximalist mayhem” (GQ).
