Yliopistonkatu 55, 33100

Robert Schumann (1810–1856): Faust Overture
Kaija Saariaho (s. 1952): Harp Concerto ”Trans”
Robert Schumann (1810–1856): Symphony no. 2, C major, op. 61

Andre de Ridder, conductor
Xavier de Maistre, harp

Schubert’s Second Symphony follows in Beethoven’s footsteps towards Romanticism. The symphony’s lightness and beauty shine even brighter in the light of the dismal conditions in which it was composed. Xavier de Maistre taps into mystic and sempiternal moods in Saariaho’s harp concerto. The concert is conducted by genre-defying André de Ridder who has worked with Saariaho’s compositions previously.
