Dima Slobodeniouk conducts Sibelius, Elgar, and Nielsen featuring cellist Truls Mørk
The Russian-born conductor Dima Slobodeniouk makes his BSO subscription series debut in these concerts, collaborating with cellist Truls Mørk in Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto, the composer’s last masterpiece and one of the central works of the cello repertoire.
Completing the program are works by two Nordic contemporaries. Jean Sibelius’ Pohjola’s Daughter is one of the composer’s many orchestral tone poems inspired by the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic. Denmark’s greatest symphonist, Carl Nielsen, composed his two-movement Symphony No. 5 in the early 1920s. Last played by the BSO in 1993, the Fifth moves from a dramatic, multipart opening movement to an affirmative, fugue-dominated finale.
