Event Details:



Twin Cities audiences have a chance to hear this program that Artistic Partner Pekka Kuusisto and the SPCO will bring to New York’s Lincoln Center in May of 2020. Bach’s Third Brandenburg Concerto, with its rapid-fire counterpoint and interplay between each musician, serves as the inspiration for Anders Hillborg’s violin concerto, Bach Materia, written specifically for Kuusisto and his improvisational abilities. Prokofiev was inspired by Haydn and Mozart symphonies in writing his effervescent Classical Symphony, and there is no more compelling example of the classical symphonic form than Haydn’s Symphony No. 99.
