The Orchestra enjoys a historic connection with the great Finnish master Jean Sibelius—Stokowski led the U.S. premieres of his last three symphonies. Rattle conducts the final two, together without interruption. Musical mega-star and Curtis graduate Lang Lang performs Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, a revolutionary work that foreshadowed the Romantic era in music. Plus an energetic work by American composer Andrew Norman. The title Unstuck refers to the moment when he overcame writer’s block and began composing at a furious pace.
