Vänskä Conducts Kullervo

SIBELIUS
Kullervo
Finlandia

The music world was rocked in 2010 when Alex Ross of The New Yorker said the Minnesota Orchestra sounded like “the greatest orchestra in the world” in a Carnegie Hall performance of Sibelius’ Kullervo.

Hear this concert—and you’ll be wowed just like Ross and so many others. Kullervo is the darkly beautiful early work of Sibelius, and to help tell the tale of this tragic Finnish character, the Orchestra is joined by all-star vocalists including one of the world’s finest men’s choirs. Performance will feature English translations projected above the stage.

The year 2015 marks the 150th birthday of the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. With our own special connection to Sibelius, we’re thrilled to participate in the Sibelius 150 international jubilee. Join us for select Sibelius concerts to commemorate Finland’s most prestigious composer. Click here for more information ».
