Jaakko Kuusisto

Jaakko's new Cello Concerto a success at Naantali Music Festival

Jaakko Kuusisto's latest work, a Cello Concerto, was premiered on June 11th at the Naantali Music Festival. The work was commissioned by the Festival at the initiative of its artistic director Arto Noras, to whom it is also dedicated. Noras was the self-evident soloist for the premiered, and he was joined on stage by the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra conducted by the composer. The Concerto was immediately very well received by both the public and critics.

Kuusisto's Cello Concerto is about 25 minutes in length, and is scored for strings and one percussionist.
