The year 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and the death of Béla Bartók. The young Polish conductor Urbanski returns to Helsinki with the greatest works of two of his fellow countrymen, Krzysztof Penderecki’s Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima for strings and Witold Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra, which pays homage to Bartók. The mournful D minor concerto was Beethoven’s favourite Mozart concerto.
