This September, join the ACO and one of the most versatile composer-performers of our time, Olli Mustonen, for an enthralling journey with music by Bach, Hindemith, Shostakovich and the world premiere of Mustonen’s own Sonata for Cello and Orchestra.
For Mustonen no two concerts are ever the same. The Finnish polymath’s highly original physical approach to playing the piano brings freshness and excitement to a program spanning almost 300 years of masterworks.
