Lovely and inspiring music from the operas of Richard Strauss opens and closes this programme conducted by Eivind Aadland. Both Aadland and Gimse hail from Norway, whose most famous composer Edvard Grieg is featured here with his Lyric Suite, a set of four piano pieces arranged for orchestra. Gimse is one of Scandinavia’s leading pianists. He performed with the Turku Philharmonic to a full house in 2018 and returns now in Classical style with Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 23.
