John Storgårds conductor
Truls Mørk cello

Not many pieces evoke a walk to a pub, but Delius's lovely
heat-drenched orchestral rhapsody is one. Frank Bridge's
The Sea blows the languor away with its evocation of salt-
spray and wind, and the Second Cello Concerto Towards the
Horizon by the Finnish composer Rautavaara also passes
through stormy episodes, before the calm of a distant horizon
is glimpsed.

Einojuhani Rautavaara : Towards the Horizon
Frank Bridge : The Sea
Frederick Delius : The Walk to the Paradise Garden
Jean Sibelius : Symphony No 5
