Hannu Lintu, conductor
Nina Stemme, soprano
Sibelius’s magnificent E flat major symphony took an unusually long time to mature. The themes of Matthew Whittall’s The Architecture of Happiness are happiness, beauty, success, loss, grief and recovery. The concert ends with the closing scene from Richard Strauss’s opera Salome, in which death mingles with eroticism in a way that is no less than startling.
