The BBC SO's Sibelius season comes to an end with the First Symphony, where you'll hear echoes of Tchaikovsky next to thrilling signs of the 'real' Sibelius. Alongside it is the latest concerto from Sibelius's compatriot Kalevi Aho, and Shostakovich's brilliant and witty ballet suite The Bolt, which mingles parodies of 1920s popular music with evocations of the Machine Age.

From the complete Sibelius Symphonies, to Dvorak’s neglected masterpiece The Jacobin and thrilling premieres by today’s most exciting composers, there is something for everyone in the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s 2011-12 season.

Dmitri Shostakovich : The Bolt - Suite
Kalevi Aho : Trombone Concerto
Jean Sibelius : Symphony No 1
