Klaus Mäkelä, conductor
Emmanuel Ceysson, harp
Sauli Zinovjev Un Grande Sospiro, world premiere
Reinhold Glière Harp Concerto
Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony no. 5
Klaus Mäkelä continues his Beethoven cycle, leading the audience from the unknown to the well known: the world premiere of Sauli Zinovjev’s Un Grande Sospiro is followed by the upbeat Harp Concerto of Glière, with the virtuoso Emmanuel Ceysson as soloist. The concluding number is by far the best known of Beethoven’s symphonies, Symphony no. 5, where ‘fate knocks at the door’. The evening begins with a presentation of the works on the programme and concludes with a selection of chamber music.
