The sizzling percussion concerto Shing Kham was the last work to be written by Peter Lieberson. It takes its name from a Buddhist concept. The name of the viola concerto by Mark-Anthony Turnage in turn alludes to poems by Seamus Heaney.

Pre Concert Talk at 6 pm in the main foyer: Mark-Anthony Turnage and Musica nova Helsinki Festival artistic director Anssi Karttunen.
