Sibelius’ composing hut was situated under a migration path of Finnish swans. And so, every year he bade farewell to these majestic creatures and awaited their return after the long winter. His Fifth Symphony climaxes with a glorious melody he called his ‘Swan Theme’. To tie in with this poetical idea, we have Nielsen’s Helios Overture, an ode to the sun, and Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Suite.
Nielsen: Helios Overture
Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake Suite
Sibelius: Symphony No. 5
