The Forests of Aulanko

The Arensky Chamber Orchestra presents ‘The Forests of Aulanko’ – a classical concert with a twist, featuring Sibelius’s Symphony No. 5.

The Hospital Club, 24 Endell Street, London WC2H 9HQ   |   8.00pm   |   24 June 2017

Sibelius: The Swan of Tuonela
Alex Woolf: Aulanko Responses
Sibelius: Symphony No. 5

Arensky Chamber Orchestra – William Kunhardt, artistic director/principal conductor

Aulanko follows the orchestra’s 2016 sell-out performance of Sibelius’s Seventh Symphony ‘in miniature’, a concert the Guardian said ‘made you feel like you were at the centre of an arctic gale with frost on your chin!’  It also features Sibelius’s Swan of Tuonela as well as a world première – Aulanko Responses, by 2012 BBC Young Composer of the Year, Alex Woolf. Aulanko Responses weaves music and poetry readings together, painting the forests landscapes of Sibelius’s homeland in sound.

The experience will include food and drink inspired by the Symphony and a ‘live programme note’ filled with stories about Sibelius and his masterpiece, delivered by the musicians from the stage. The event will be set in the Hospital Club’s penthouse cabaret salon, The Oak Room, giving the public one-night-only access to this exclusive members club.

The Arensky Chamber Orchestra is Britain’s orchestra of revolutionaries. Extraordinary classical musicians dedicated to electrifying performance and mind-opening presentation.
