The two symphonies of Sibelius to be heard this evening represent respectively the early and late periods of the composer's development. No. 2 in D was composed in 1902, and No. 6 in D minor in 1924. In the second symphony Sibelius strikes out on new lines, introducing many important and interesting innovations in symphonic construction. The music is vigorous, pointed, and deeply expressive. The sixth symphony is curiously different in style from any of Sibelius's other symphonies. Constant Lambert describes it as being a ' fascinating study in half-tone, emotional and orchestral '.
