Sibelius’s implacable protest against Russia’s oppressive rule of his native land opens this celebration of late Romantic music while Brahms’s double concerto – a piece that combines chamber music intimacy with grand orchestral gesture – showcases the artistry of Mihaela Martin and Frans Helmerson.

The vast canvas of Rachmaninov’s epic symphony makes a powerful climax to this thrilling concert.
