Nordic Adventures - Master Series 2

Eivind Aadland - Conductor
Boris Giltburg - Piano

Arnold Bax - Tintagel
Grieg - Piano Concerto
Sibelius - Symphony No 2

Land ahoy! The Atlantic coast of Cornwall comes into view, and perched atop the cliffs stands the ruined Tintagel Castle. Bax’s tone poem takes the breath away; this orchestral cruise past the ancient scene of Arthurian legend has become his best-known work.

 

Polymath pianist Boris Giltburg joins us as we sail further north, up to the west coast of Norway. Here Grieg’s instantly recognisable Piano Concerto mirrors the grandeur of the fjords. With its striking harmonies and its folk-dance finale, this was the young composer’s break-through work in Europe.

 

Finally, Eivind Aadland – one of Norway's most respected conductors who is our captain for this voyage – steers us into the vast ocean of Sibelius’s Second Symphony. The horizons stretch out endlessly in this remarkably spacious work. Calm seas become stormy in the final movement, but the orchestra rides out the massive waves and a stirring melody brings us safely home.
