About this Performance

Five years ago, maverick violinist Pekka Kuusisto gave the world premiere of Daníel Bjarnason’s dazzling concerto that explores the sound possibilities of what a violin (and an exceptional violinist) can create, and he returns to the Bowl for an encore performance. Finnish conductor Dalia Stasevska has been widely celebrated by critics for her ability to “elicit the finest nuances with her precise directing” (Bachtrack). She leads Dvořák’s cheerful Eighth Symphony, featuring vibrant Czech folk melodies, as well as Anna Meredith’s Nautilus, which has been called “pure maximalist mayhem” by GQ while showing up in the soundtracks of everything from Netflix’s Living With Yourself to Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade.
