The intrepid Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and violin “performer extraordinaire” Pekka Kuusisto (Strad) bring an ingenious program pairing classical works with contemporary innovation. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 gives way to a new companion piece by Swedish composer Anders Hillborg, Bach Materia, a witty, spirited work that hinges on improvisation. Haydn’s harmonically adventurous Symphony No. 99 is followed by Prokofiev’s agile “Classical” Symphony, which references Haydn’s genius.

The Program

“An artist of astonishing gifts.”
– Cincinnati.com on Kuusisto
“Outrageously enjoyable.”
– Star Tribune (Minnesota)
“The beauty, joy and freshness of the Saint Paul players’ music-making...didn’t just breathe life into well-worn standards of the repertory. It was also a reassurance that participatory democracy is alive and well.”
– New York Times

Venue

1941 Broadway
