Sibelius's final symphonies, No. 6 and No. 7, are led by one of the world’s consummate Sibelius interpreters, Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu. The Sixth is delicately beautiful and mysterious, and the Seventh features one of the most powerful endings in classical music. Norwegian trumpet virtuoso Tine Thing Helseth joins the BSO for a stunning showpiece, the popular Hummel Trumpet Concerto, as well as the North American premiere of Penderecki’s Concertino for Trumpet and Orchestra.
