The Finnish conductor Klaus Mäkelä, who will become the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's eighth Chief Conductor in 2027, is leading the orchestra in Sibelius’s Fourth Symphony and in Mozart’s emotional Requiem: it’s fascinating music surrounded by speculation. The work thus became a requiem for Mozart himself, as well as a universally loved masterpiece which still serves as a source of comfort, reflection and pure listening pleasure to many. Jean Sibelius’s Fourth Symphony, a work full of menace and darkness - yet the work is not all doom and gloom: Sibelius’s Fourth contains beautiful moments of hope, light and mystery.
