John StorgårdsPetroc Trelawny presents this week’s Sunday concert from the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

John Storgårds and the BBC Philharmonic continue their exploration of Sibelius’s symphonies with performances of the Second and Fourth.

The second is a playful, triumphant work which could hardly be more different from the Fourth, which was written when the composer was struggling to come to terms with the fact that he had just been diagnosed with cancer.
