“Breaking Ground” – music by J.S. Bach, Philip Glass, Arvo Pärt, Nico Muhly, with Finnish folksongs
This concert has happened. Tickets are no longer available.
According to The Telegraph (London), Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto “surely has the most personal sound of any classical violinist now alive.” Composer-pianist Nico Muhly is one of the most celebrated and sought-after classical composers of the last decade and is the youngest composer ever commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera. These ground-breaking classical musicians join forces for a hallmark program of their own curating that combines the music of J.S. Bach with contemporary fare.
- The Washington Post
“Kuusisto and Muhly brought a sense of such intimacy and spontaneity...more concerts should feel this way.”
