About

Bruges’s favourite violinist plays the 20th century’s most famous violin concerto

In complete contrast to the cool climate of his Finnish homeland, the music of Jean Sibelius radiates a warm glow. In his wildly popular Violin Concerto he combines the typical northern atmosphere with the passion and the melancholy of the romantic. Brahms's Fourth Symphony is more sombre in tone. Despite a scathing review from famous critic Hanslick, the audience at its 1885 premiere were wildly enthusiastic.
