W. A. Mozart: Clarinet Concerto (1791)
                       Symphony No. 40 (1788)


Our guest is Janne Nisonen, one of the most versatile Finnish musicians of his generation and one able to switch with ease between the roles of conductor, leader, solo violinist and chamber musician. Tonight he conducts the orchestra in a magnificent Mozart programme that is like a cross-section of that composer’s most impressive works. The soloist in the Clarinet Concerto, a work of beautiful, lyrical melodies that sound so easy but are so difficult to play is Harri Mäki. A top Finnish clarinettist, he is a Professor of woodwind music at the Sibelius Academy in addition to his performing career. The concert ends with Mozart’s refreshing Symphony No. 40, one of the best-loved symphonies of all time.
