Anders Hillborg: Mantra – Elegy. Homage to Stravinsky
Igor Stravinsky: Violin Concerto
Joseph Haydn: Symphony no. 104, “London”
Pekka Kuusisto, the soloist at this concert needs little introduction. Tonight he plays the mighty violin concerto by Igor Stravinsky in what will undoubtedly be a gripping display of rhythmic fireworks, humour, and soloist-orchestra dialogue. Homage to Stravinsky by Swedish composer Anders Hillborg was premiered in London a year ago. The concert ends with the great last symphony by Joseph Haydn likewise premiered in London in its day, a combination of the earthy vigour, musical poetry and humour characteristic of Haydn.
