Sibelius Symphony No 1
Guildhall School welcomes the award-winning Australian-British conductor Jessica Cottis to conduct an exhilarating programme of Missy Mazzoli’s 2011 work Violent, Violent Sea alongside Leoš Janáček's famous, brass-filled Sinfonietta. Jean Sibelius's glorious First Symphony closes the evening.
Conductor Jessica Cottis has captured international attention for her intellect, innate musicality and easy authority. Hailed as "gifted" (The Times) and “cool, contained, super-articulate and engaging” (The Scotsman), she is a charismatic figure on the podium who brings dynamism and clarity of vision to all her performances.
