Jean Sibelius: Tapiola

Jim James & Teddy Abrams: The Order of Nature, with BFO

Indie rockstar Jim James and Teddy Abrams co-wrote a song cycle for James and orchestra entitled The Order of Nature. The nine songs form a song cycle that reflects on humanity’s relationship with nature. As James puts it, the songs probe the idea that, “…nature doesn’t know how to hate… Humans are part of nature, obviously, but why do we have this thing called hatred and how do we get rid of it.” This program also includes a performance of Jean Sibelius’s Tapiola, which literally translates to “The Realm of Tapio,” who is a mythical forest spirit of Sibelius’s native Finland.
