Cellist Arto Noras plays Jaakko Kuusisto’s Cello Concerto, commissioned by the Naantali Music Festival at the initiative of its artistic director Arto Noras, to whom it is also dedicated. The concert in Kuopio will be the second performance of the concerto by Noras.

Chief Conductor Jaakko Kuusisto has consistently realized his plan to play whole cycle of Sibelius’ symphonies with the Kuopio Symphony – now is time for Symphony No 5. The composer worked on his 5th symphony for a long time and made several versions and rewrites of it until it was polished into one of his most glorious and grand creations.
