Romanza e Scherzoso

Fri 29/11/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 46.00-9.50 €


Pianist Kirill Gerstein always brings with him something new and exciting, this time his friend Thomas Adès with his new piano concerto, plus Bussoni’s Romanza e Scherzoso with its Mozartian gestures. Equally adept as a composer, conductor and pianist, and a self-professed fan of Jean Sibelius, Thomas Adès will be making his debut as conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra.
