From the psychological intensity of Janáček and Adams to evocative, classic American folk songs of salvation reinterpreted by Sam Amidon - discover the program curated by Pekka Kuusisto for the world premiere of Murder & Redemption.

This concert experience has been uniquely crafted to be performed non-stop over two parts, seamlessly interweaving the narrative through folk and classical music. Taking the listener from the darkest corners of the human mind and into the light – this is a journey from 'hell' to 'heaven' with Pekka Kuusisto, Sam Amidon and the ACO as your guides.
