Tonight the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, conducted by Sakari Oramo, performed a mixed program of Magnus Lindberg (Feria), Bela Bartok (Second Piano Concerto, Peter Donohoe soloist) and Jean Sibelius (Fifth Symphony).
The oldest piece, the Sibelius, is arguably still the most 'modernist' piece. No show-piece for any orchestra, though, as is the Lindberg. I wish they took the Bartok at a slightly more moderate tempo, even though it probably came pretty close to the composer's intentions.
