Wed 25/10/2017 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 36.00-7.00 €

Introduction

Simone Young from Australia has conducted some of the world’s finest orchestras, from the Vienna and Berlin philharmonics to New York’s Metropolitan Opera – and now she is finally visiting Finland too. She is unrivalled as an interpreter of Brahms, having served as chief conductor of the Hamburg Philharmonic in the composer’s hometown for a ten-year period. Elza van der Heever and Daniel Schmutzhard, stars of international opera stages, shine in A German Requiem, the life-affirming message of which is more comforting than sad.
