BACH AND BEETHOVEN


'Detail after detail is finely articulated, as though etched with the point of a needle [...] the clarity and extraordinary finesse yield something I can only describe as visionary.'

BBC Music Magazine


Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra, Olli Mustonen has a unique place in today's music scene. Following the tradition of great masters such as Rachmaninov, Busoni and Enescu, Mustonen combines the roles of composer, pianist and conductor in an equal balance that is quite exceptional, often bringing them together in fascinating triple-role performances. 

During an illustrious career spanning thirty-five years, Mustonen has brought his extraordinary musical insight to many of the world's most significant orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras, Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw, Marinsky Theatre Orchestra, Orchestra de Paris and all of the London orchestras. 

A unique opportunity to see one of the world's most exciting pianists in an intimate setting, Olli Mustonen makes his UKARIA debut performing music by Bach and Beethoven.
