Romeo and Juliet

Fri 26/04/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 37.00-7.00 €


Having rapidly attracted the attention of the international world of music, Lithuanian conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla returns to lead the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra for the second time. Unsuk Chin is one of the most characterful composers of our time, stretching her own limits as a composer and those of soloists, and her piano concerto is no exception. The second half of the concert presents a different, Russian mood: Sergei Prokofiev transformed the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet into moving ballet music.
