Led by Music Director Osmo Vänskä, this concert features Concertmaster Erin Keefe alongside friend and pianist Juho Pohjonen in Mendelssohn’s radiant Concerto for Piano, Violin and Strings. The program also includes the poignant world premiere of the late Jaakko Kuusisto’s final work, with edits compiled by his brother Pekka Kuusisto. To start the concert, the Sphinx Virtuosi make their Orchestra Hall debut with the stirring Ev’ry Voice for string orchestra by Xavier Foley, which encourages us to look and listen anew beyond racial and cultural divisions, and the exciting final movement of Alberto Ginastera’s Concerto for Strings. The renowned string ensemble then joins forces with the Orchestra for the remainder of the concert.
