The Jyväskylä Symphony autumn season 2019 brings new talents, leading-edge conductors and various theme concerts to the stage

The Jyväskylä Symphony autumn season 2019 takes the audience to explore the archives of musical treasures. We premiere Kalevi Aho’s concerto for bass clarinet, give concerts in the region and join forces with Kymi Sinfonietta in joint concerts.  The upcoming soloists we bring to the stage include Leonardo Chiodo, Rebecca Roozeman and Virva Puumala, and the most important visiting conductors this season are Eva Ollikainen, Kensho Watanabe and Okko Kamu. Male Choir Sirkat will celebrate their 120 years of history in a concert of their own, and in the Old Music for Christmas concert we will immerse ourselves in the enchanting world of baroque. On New Year’s Eve 31 December, the Jyväskylä Opera will premiere La Bohème with Jyväskylä Sinfonia as the opera orchestra. The opera conductor is Jyväskylä Sinfonia chief conductor Ville Matvejeff.

In the opening concert of our autumn season we have the honour of premiering a new composition commissioned from Kalevi Aho with bass clarinet player Mikko Raasakka as soloist. In a concert conducted by our top guest Eva Ollikainen, the young cello sensation Leonardo Chiodo will appear as soloist in Shostakovich Cello Concerto. In addition to Jyväskylä, our September concert tour will take us to Hankasalmi and Jämsä, led by Sibelius Academy conductor class.

Cello artist Tuomas Ylinen will interpret Schumanns’ melancholy and somewhat enigmatic Cello Concerto in the beginning of October. There will be a repeat performance of this concert in Saarijärvi. Our Japan-themed concert will take us to an exotic journey guided by Skakuhachi artist Tadashi Tajima. To counterbalance the Japanese program, we have selected music from the Russian Igor Stravinsky and from W.A. Mozart. In October, the musicians from our own orchestra will also take the stage when we unleash the unbeatable pair of clarinet players Gil Shaked-Agababa and Kristjan Parts.

The cooperation between Jyväskylä Symphony and Kymi Sinfonietta will continue in November! The concerts by the two orchestras will feature music by Lindberg, Sibelius and Rachmaninoff. The winner of the Juhani Heinonen Violin Competition Rebecca Roozeman will be the soloist of the Sibelius Violon Concerto. Maestro Okko Kamu will conduct the national romantic anniversary concert of Male Choir Sirkat in December before our baroque-themed Christmas Concert in the Taulumäki Church. 

14 November Erin and Jyväskylä Symphony in Paviljonki! Known for her distinctive voice and heart-touching interpretations, Erin is one of Finland’s most popular and brilliant artists and she has had a long, successful career. In the Jyväskylä Paviljonki on 14 November, the light and playful tunes of acoustic folk and the elements of electronic pop will sound in Erin’s biggest hits that are accompanied with the voluptuous, soft sounds of Jyväskylä Symphony.

The day concerts hosted by a presented will take place on Wednesdays at noon on 2 October and 23 October with parts of the programme of the evening concerts.
