The 2017/18 season marks Hannu Lintu’s fifth year as Chief Conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Last season’s highlights include a concert tour to Russia, with performances at the Moscow Conservatory, Vyborg’s House of Culture and St Petersburg’s Philharmonic Grand Hall, and a performance of Väinö Raitio’s opera Princess Cecilia at the Helsinki Festival – both part of celebrations marking 100 years of Finnish independence. On Independence Day (6 December 2017) the orchestra honours its 90th anniversary and 100-year-old Finland, premiering newly commissioned works by longtime FRSO collaborator Magnus Lindberg and Lotta Wennäkoski. In March 2018 the FRSO tours Spain and Germany with cellist Sol Gabetta, taking in such venues as the Berlin Philharmonie and the Cologne Philharmonie. Read more
