Alongside the great symphonies and tone poems, music for the theatre played an important role in Sibelius’s development. From exquisite nocturnal tranquility to the macabre ‘Dance of Life’, Belshazzar’s Feast is an exotic tale of seduction and tragedy to which Sibelius responded with some of his most hauntingly beautiful writing for the stage. The early Menuetto and lively Cortège were considered good enough by the composer to be recycled for further stage productions, while the Overture in E and Scène de Ballet started life as Sibelius’s first attempt at composing a symphony. As the oldest orchestra in Finland (its historical routes trace back to 1790), the Turku Philharmonic continues to develop and flourish. Leif Segerstam, artistic director of the orchestra since 2012, has gained wide acclaim for his many, and varied recordings across a fifty-year career that has also seen him produce an extensive oeuvre as a composer.
