Over recent years, Dima Slobodeniouk – Music Director of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and Principal Conductor of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra in his adoptive country of Finland – has developed a close relationship with the Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra. Moldovan-born Alexandra Conunova, an alumna of the Festival Academy and now a regular guest on the Mainstage, is soloist in the first of two musical epics –  Sibelius’s poetic and gripping violin concerto. It is followed by the work that epitomises Beethoven for the world, his endlessly compelling Symphony No 5.
