Dates to come
Pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin returns to the OSM to perform Prokofiev’s Concerto no. 2, a work of spectacular bravura that caused a scandal when it was premiered in 1913. Under the baton of Finnish conductor John Storgårds, the Orchestra sets off on epic adventures, from the depiction of Charon’s rowboat in Rachmaninoff’s Isle of the Dead, to Sibelius’ tone poem En saga, the inspiration for the Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski’s Verdigris.
