On this Klubb Klassisk evening, the musicians of the NCO under the direction of violinist Pekka Kuusisto present a specially selected programme juxtaposing two American minimalists, Philip Glass and Steve Reich, with two major heirs to minimalism, Nico Muhly and Bryce Dessner. The programme also includes Bach’s Double Concerto which creates the musical tension the NCO is well-known for. A must-see concert, especially with our new artistic director Pekka Kuusisto at ease in a sound universe he thrives on.
