In a rare opportunity to hear these masterpieces in close proximity, Music Director Ludovic Morlot traces Dvořák’s musical path through the Seventh, Eighth and Ninth symphonies — the journey of the son of a Bohemian innkeeper who conquered Europe and won over the New World.

BEETHOVEN: Egmont Overture JULIAN ANDERSON: Violin Concerto BRAHMS: Symphony No. 1 Echoes of Beethoven infuse Brahms’ moving First Symphony. Music Director Ludovic Morlot leads this stunning program, including a crackling work by British composer Julian Anderson, who creates “vivid, transfixing sound worlds.”

Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances made him an international sensation, but he aspired to be more than just a “Czech” composer. His Symphony No. 7, requested by London’s Royal Philharmonic Society — the same organization that had commissioned Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony — reveals Dvořák at his most cosmopolitan, weaving gorgeous and melancholy strains in minor keys. The Eighth Symphony, by contrast, has the warm, nostalgic tone of a seasoned world traveler returning to the idylls of his youth. When Antonín Dvořák arrived in the United States in 1892, his hope was to lead Americans “into the Promised Land, the realm of a new, independent art, in short a national style of music!” His final symphony, subtitled “From the New World,” demonstrated that America’s local musical traditions could form the basis of a new national sound. Drawing inspiration from Longfellow’s epic poem The Song of Hiawatha as well as Native American melodies that had been transcribed by musicologists, the “New World” Symphony reads like a heartfelt dispatch from a country that was just discovering its own distinctive music.

INTIMATE VOICES SIBELIUS ANNIVERSARY PRINCIPAL GUEST CONDUCTOR THOMAS DAUSGAARD BRINGS THIS COMPOSER’S UNIQUE WORLD TO BENAROYA HALL.

Commemorating the 150th anniversary of Jean Sibelius’ birth, this threeweek festival celebrates the great Finnish master with a complete cycle of his symphonies. Sibelius drew his inspiration from surroundings that mirror our own Pacific Northwest: a landscape of glacial lakes, conifer forests, sea breezes, migrating birds, long summer nights and dark winters. 150 years after Sibelius’ birth, the Seattle Symphony celebrates this kindred spirit with a festival featuring all seven symphonies as well as chamber music, cultural events and the beloved Violin Concerto, all presided over by Thomas Dausgaard, the newly appointed Principal Guest Conductor, who brings deep Nordic roots and unique insights into Sibelius’ world. While Europe shook violently around Sibelius, he stayed true to his singular musical identity. His early symphonies express the fervor of a young man fighting for recognition for his country and a place for his own voice on the international stage. Starting with the Third Symphony, Sibelius shifted toward a pure and refined orchestral sound, infusing the elegance of Mozart and Haydn into an incisive, modern language. Even through the dark years of a cancer scare and the devastation of World War I, Sibelius wrote honest, uncompromising music that encapsulated life’s joys and struggles in abstract forms. In his final symphonies, Sibelius defied the cynicism of the war-torn era; his symphonies became even more transparent and rarified, as guileless as the snow that blanketed his isolated country estate.
