About

Susanna Malkki introduces us to her world of musical inspirations. The spirit, folk epics and sweeping landscapes of Malkki's native Finland are captured in the music of Sibelius, who stands as a cultural hero to his Nordic homeland. Malkki conducts his Fifth Symphony, an exhilarating journey to the grand, elemental hymn of the finale, inspired by a flight of swans swooping across the sky. Before stepping onto the conductor's podium, Malkki was also a cellist. She returns to the singing depths of her instrument for Elgar's Cello Concerto, with soloist Daniel Muller-Schott bringing its wistful melancholy to life. And, finally, Malkki draws on her zeal for contemporary music to conduct a new work by Patrick Giguere, commissioned as part of the LSO's Panufnik Composers Scheme.
