Sixteen swans flying through the April sky inspired the final movement of Jean Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony. “One of the great experiences of my life! God, how beautiful,” he wrote in his diary, alongside a jotting of musical notes that became the symphony’s famous ‘swan’ theme. Let your heart soar with the timeless beauty of Sibelius’ music in this evening dedicated to the Finnish master, featuring renowned Canadian violinist Karen Gomyo. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance and intensity,” Gomyo displays her virtuosity in Sibelius’s ravishingly complex Violin Concerto in D minor.
