Triptych

Tickets: 46.00-9.50 €

Introduction

Walt Disney catapulted the rhythms of the William Tell Overture into their own orbit already in the 1930s, yet the piece itself – and this concert – begins quietly with cellos. Olli Mustonen’s concert also features sparkling and mysterious music that climbs to cleansing heights, as well as an orchestra concerto that sparks with light and humour. As its creator, Rodion Shchedrin, told Mustonen: ”It takes great courage as a composer to be so positive.”
