“For me music begins where words cease. The germ and fertilization of my symphonies have been solely musical.”

These were the thoughts of Sibelius as he composed his seven symphonies. On this program we hear his first symphony, composed in a time when most composers favored single-movement works that told a story. Sibelius, taking his inspiration from the symphonies of Tchaikovsky, pressed the symphonic genre forward writing by music for its own sake. This is contrasted by Richard Strauss’s Duet Concertino which tells the story of Beauty and the Beast as represented by the clarinet and bassoon. The program begins with the world premiere of a work written especially for the Thailand Philharmonic by Italian composer Massimo Capogrosso.
