SIBELIUS Six Humoresques for Violin and Orchestra, Opp. 87 & 89
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55, “Eroica”

Trick or treat? For Halloween, accomplished Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard, offers Schnelzer’s A Freak in Burbank, a humorous Haydnesque tribute to film director Tim Burton. The “consistently marvelous” Norwegian virtuoso Henning Kraggerud performs lively works that Sibelius himself favored. And, to top it all, there’s Beethoven’s “Eroica.” Enjoy!
