This unique concert opens with Jean Sibelius's last completed symphony: The Seventh Symphony lasts approximately 20 minutes and consists of only one movement – with a classic four-movement structure still echoing in the tempo markings. It also can be found particularly in the complex thematic relationships. This is followed by the symphonic poem Luonnotar, based on the Finnish story of the origin of the world: "There was a maiden, the daughter of heaven, the beautiful Luonnotar." This story is told by a soprano voice – sung by Finnish singer Camilla Nylund. The core – and at the same time contrast – of the program is Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, which has a special significance for Wagner expert Marek Janowski: "The quality is incredibly high, incredibly inspired, and it is a great compositional achievement by Wagner." Finally, three "fragments" from Alban Berg's opera Wozzeck, a socially critical work that has not lost its conciseness to this day. The "fragments" focus entirely on the person of Marie, her tragedy and her suffering.
