I’m delighted to be giving some Proms pre-concert talks this year. I’m doing two talks, on the 3rd and 4th August, so please come and join me for a whole weekend on Nordic goodness! On the 3rd I’ll be talking about the first version of Sibelius’s 5th symphony, penned in 1915. On the 4th I’m in discussion with fairytale expert Nicole Schmidt, ahead of the world premiere of Outi Tarkiainen’s Midnight Sun Variations. Ticket booking opens on the 11th May.
