Dynamic Duo: Hannigan & Storgårds
A doubly dramatic opening! Barbara Hannigan conducts Beethoven’s overture to Goethe’s play, Haydn’s inventive orchestral showpiece, and, with John Storgårds as soloist, a Dutilleux nocturne. Then, Storgårds conducts the symphony that marked the turning point of Sibelius’s composing style, as well as Brett Dean’s re-examination of Shakespeare’s ill-fated heroine, sung by Hannigan. (Pictured: Barbara Hannigan, conductor and soprano, and John Storgårds, conductor and violin)
