Sibelius Scaramouche

Earlier in the week I was lucky enough to see Sakari Oramo perform Sibelius’s Second and Seventh Symphonies, with the incomparable Anu Komsi singing Luonnotar and Ekho by Aarre Merikanto. During the interval I talked to Martin Handley about Luonnotar and Scaramouche, and the role that they play in Sibelius’s stylistic experimentation. You can hear the whole concert and our discussion here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09l23d0
