Artistic Partner Pekka Kuusisto and composer Nico Muhly have been close friends and musical soulmates for many years, and this SPCO co-commission grew out of that strong bond. Along with the U.S. Premiere of Muhly’s new violin concerto, Kuusisto brings fresh interpretations of Mozart, both his light and whimsical Country Dances, and the great G Minor Symphony, and introduces SPCO audiences to an important new composer from Sweden, Andrea Tarrodi.
Performing Friday, January 10 – Sunday, January 12
(Pekka Kuusisto was born in Espoo, Finland)
