Documentary by Christopher Nupen

In a two-part documentary, celebrated filmmaker Christopher Nupen explores the life and creative genius of Finland's greatest symphonic composer. Using Sibelius’s own words and music, he reveals an insecure tone poet’s struggle with his medium, the world and himself during a turbulent period in which music was led by trends. Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra provide an energetic and enlightening soundtrack. An essential side note in this Masterpiece Week.

Free with a ticket for Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra
