FRSO premieres orchestral concerto by Ilkka Hammo
The new orchestral work by young Ilkka Hammo (b. 1983) has its sights trained on the horizon. “A dramatic journey finally evolves out of the individual stimuli and impulses in which the restless traveller seeks room, peace and space,” is how he describes it. St. Petersburg-born pianist Yevgeny Sudbin is a favourite with Chief Conductor Hannu Lintu. Tonight he is the soloist in the Grieg piano concerto embodying the Nordic mindscape.
