Helsinki Festival will present Zimmermann Trio‘s Finnish premiere on 30-31 August, 2018 at The Helsinki Music Centre. The creation, originally commissioned by the LA Phil and Helsinki Festival, received its world premiere in Los Angeles in January. This time, the creation will be performed together with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Susanna Mälkki. Tero Saarinen’s choreography is interpreted by TSC dancers Satu Halttunen, Misa Lommi and David Scarantino. The soloist cellist is Oren Shevlin.
On Friday 31 August after the performance the audience will have the opportunity to hear more about Tero Saarinen and Susanna Mälkki’s thoughts about the evening, as well as their collaboration with the LA Phil and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. The audience discussion is moderated by composer Osmo Tapio Räihälä.
In addition to Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s cello concerto with TSC, the evening includes the HPO’s performances of J.S. Bach’s Ricercar and Richard Strauss’ An Alpine Symphony.
