NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Beauty comes in many forms. Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is a sparkling, ever-flowing river of melody. The rugged landscape of Finland beckons in a pair of compelling scores, including Sibelius’ transporting Fifth Symphony.

  • FAGERLUND Isola (NJSO Premiere)
    Ferocious, astounding, calling geological forces to mind: the piece’s title means “island.”

  • MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto
    Every note casts a spell in this much-adored concerto; the Andante’s caressing tune is a treasured highlight.

  • SIBELIUS Symphony No. 5
    Seemingly hewn from Finland’s forests and mountains, this arresting work is filled with the grandeur of nature.
