I have been keeping an eye on UK orchestra's web sites as they start to announce 2001/2012 programmes for performances of Sibelius Symphonies. So far I have picked up:-

Royal Festival Hall London Vasily Petrenko

Unfortunately I am in Northumberland for my University hiking club reunion but on Sat Jun 5th at Royal Festival Hall London Vasily Petrenko conducts the Philharmonia in Sib 2nd Symp. When he performed a cycle of the symphonies when he arrived at the Royal Liverpool Phil a few years ago they got good reviews.

You Brits sure do love your Sibelius! I wish we had as much in California.

Hmmm, interesting. I'm pleased Karabits is doing more symphonies - I heard him do No.3 in Portsmouth last year and liked it a lot.

Yes. Actually they misread the date there and in some other Finnish press reports - the concert is on 21st Feb. We don't know for sure what the solo instrument would have been - could even have been vocal (though that's less likely from the shape of the melodies). There isn't any need for a solo instrument at all - the piece is 'complete' even without it. Hurmaava kappale indeed.
So if you happen to be in the area, please join us!

Press Release
The world première of a previously unknown piece of by Jean Sibelius to be performed in Brighton by the composer’s granddaughter
The Finnish School of Brighton proudly presents an evening of music by the most noted Nordic symphonic composer Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) on Thursday 21st February 2013 at 8.30 p.m. Satu Jalas, the granddaughter of the composer, and Folke Gräsbeck, a world-renowned concert pianist, are performing in concert.
Satu Jalas will play Sibelius’s own violin at the concert. The violin is unlabelled and undated but is thought to be by the renowned Austrian instrument maker Jacob Stainer (c. 1617–83), who alongside Stradivarius ranks as one of the foremost violinmakers of all time.
Satu Jalas said: ‘I remember my grandfather’s tender smile when he asked what I had dreamt in the night. I remember how he corrected my left hand when I played the violin with him. He gave his violin to me when I was twelve, and with this instrument I shall here play some of his violin compositions. My life has taken me away from Finland, but my soul is there forever.’
Satu Jalas’s choice of music by her grandfather focuses primarily on works from the period of the First World War, by which time his position as Finland’s leading composer was already secure. The programme includes the Romance in F major, the atmospheric On the Heath and a selection of his enchanting, sparkling Humoresques.
In late 2012, two Sibelius manuscripts, previously unknown to scholars, were found at the Eda Kuhn Loeb Music Library at Harvard University. Folke Gräsbeck, one of the leading Sibelius scholars and interpreters of today, will give the world première concert performance of one of these, a D major Andantino for piano, (1889) written for the newly born daughter of a close friend.
Mari Martiskainen, from the Finnish School of Brighton said: ‘We are truly honoured to be hosting this concert. Not only do we have Satu Jalas and Folke Gräsbeck visiting and performing in Brighton, but to also have a world première of a previously unknown piece by Sibelius is remarkable. This will be a fantastic event for the Finnish community in Brighton.’
Andrew Barnett, biographer of Sibelius and chairman of the UK Sibelius Society, comments: ‘Nobody is more attuned to Sibelius’s sound world than Satu Jalas and Folke Gräsbeck, who have performed together on numerous occasions; their interpretations have a very real authority, and Satu’s performances of the violin works enjoy the imprimatur of the composer. Moreover, this concert is a landmark event because nowadays it is exceedingly rare to come across a work by Sibelius that has yet not been performed in public, anywhere in the world. In January, Folke Gräsbeck recorded the piece for the Swedish label BIS [for release this spring: BIS-2065] and this concert can be seen as a follow-up to the recording sessions.’
The concert takes place on Thursday 21st February 2013 at 8.30 p.m. in St Paul’s C.E. School, St Nicholas Road, Brighton, BN1 3LP. Tickets are priced £7 and available via the Finnish School of Brighton’s Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/groups/148653794042/.
If you would like more information about the concert, or to schedule an interview with Satu Jalas or Folke Gräsbeck, please contact Andrew Barnett on 01273 307131. Members of the press wishing to attend the concert, please contact Mari Martiskainen on 07734 703459.

Very interesting concert coming up on 13th Feb from St Johns Smith Square, London. London Mozart Players under Joseph Swensen perform Sibelius's 'Pelleas et Melisande with a narration written and spoken by actor Simon Callow.--kp
