John Storgårds conductor
Pekka Kuusisto violin
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company Brian Isaac Phillips, director


An eclectic and brilliant artist described as “probably the most engaging maverick in classical music today,” Pekka Kuusisto will perform Peteris Vasks’ Vox amoris (“Voice of love”). According to the composer, this beautiful piece for solo violin and orchestra “has to do with the strongest force in the world - love.” John Storgårds, making a return appearance with the CSO, opens the program with Tchaikovsky’s Hamlet, which vividly captures the atmosphere and characters of Shakespeare’s play, enhanced by dramatic readings by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. The concerts end with Sibelius' nationalistic Lemminkäinen Suite, subtitled “Four Legends from the Kalevala,” including the famous “Swan of Tuonela.”

FREE! Pre-concert light dinner buffet before all Thursday Masterworks
