Thomas SøndergÃ¥rd – Conductor

Matthew Featherstone – Flute

Sibelius’ patriotic side comes to the fore with his most anthemic tone poem and then his fifth symphony, a paean to nature and the countryside of his homeland. The first half balances Finnish fervour with music on a Danish theme, starting with a suite of light, incidental pieces for a play about King Christian II. Carl Nielsen, Denmark’s most celebrated composer, keeps the playful mood going with his concise and provocative flute concerto, played by BBC NOW’s Principal Flute Matthew Featherstone.
