Between fire and ice, at the northern edge of Europe, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra has been making vibrations – and you’ll hear why when it makes its first visit to Birmingham. Naturally, under conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier, there’s a French accent: and pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet is unbeatable in Ravel’s volcanic concerto. But there are powerful Nordic sounds from Anna Thorvaldsdottir, too – plus the elemental power and brooding melodies of Sibelius’s evergreen First Symphony.
