Wayward genius… extraordinary sound… there’s not an inch of formality to Pekka Kuusisto. He is one-of-a-kind - a mesmerising player, with a riveting personality on stage who has earned himself a bit of a maverick reputation. His programme is a sort of musical ‘farewell’ through the last four centuries.

The movements of Ravel’s light-hearted, reflective Tombeau de Couperin, themselves written as commemorations to friends of Ravel, dovetail with works written in times of conflict, including Messiaen’s Abyss of the Birds.

Bartók: Soldier Song
Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin
Ravel: Sonata for Violin and Cello: Mvt 1
Messiaen: Abîme des Oiseaux from Quatuor pour le fin de Temps
Crumb: God-Music from Black Angels
Biber: Battaglia
Haydn: Symphony No 45 in F-sharp minor, ‘Farewell’

Pekka Kuusisto: Director/Violin
Maximiliano Martín: Clarinet
Benjamin Marquise Gilmore: Violin
Philip Higham: Cello

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Pekka Kuusisto Directs Ravel and Haydn are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
