Turku Philharmonic Orchestra
Joan Tower: Chamber Dance
Sally Beamish: Under the wing of the rock
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Symphony no. 39 in E flat major
Jasmine Beams is the star of this programme. The viola concerto Under the wing of the rock is based on a Celtic poem about a mother and child spared from death by a soldier. Chamber Dance calls for seamless, dance-like cooperation from the musicians. These two contemporary works are paired with the first of Mozart’s final triplet of symphonies, all written in the same summer.
The length of the concert is about 1 h 15 min. No intermission.
