PEKKA KUUSISTO Director / Violin
If a concert could be like a great American road trip, this would be it. You get to take in iconic American classics like Barber’s Adagio for Strings, as well as discovering exciting voices of the latest generation.
Pekka Kuusisto brings fruits of his close musical relationships with two of the hippest, hottest, and most widely admired of younger American composers. Bryce Dessner (from the American indie-rock band The National) and Nico Muhly are the heirs-apparent to the likes of Philip Glass and Steve Reich, writing music that is as engaging and accessible as it is stimulating and intriguing. Pekka Kuusisto is their perfect interpreter.
Composer Insights, 6.45pm: Nico Muhly discusses his Violin Concerto with Pekka Kuusisto.
