BBC Philharmonic: Aho/Tarkiainen/Shostakovich

This event has passed

Kalevi Aho Theremin Concerto (32’) (UK premiere)
Outi Tarkiainen Midnight Sun Variations (10’)
Shostakovich Symphony No.12, ‘The Year 1917’ (38’)

The world’s leading theremin virtuoso, Carolina Eyck will be making magic from thin air with a concerto written for her by Kalevi Aho. Outi Tarkiainen’s Midnight Sun Variations celebrates the endless daylight of the Nordic summer, before a work with a very different inspiration: Shostakovich’s 12th Symphony, dedicated to Lenin.
