Wayward genius… extraordinary sound… there’s not an inch of formality to Pekka Kuusisto. He is one-of-a-kind — a mesmerising player, with a riveting personality on stage who has earned himself a bit of a maverick reputation. His programme is a sort of musical ‘farewell’ through the last four centuries.

The movements of Ravel’s light-hearted, reflective Tombeau de Couperin, themselves written as commemorations to friends of Ravel, dovetail with works written in times of conflict, including Messiaen’s Abyss of the Birds.

This adventurous concert has “memorable” written all over it!

THERE’S NOT AN INCH OF FORMALITY TO HIS PLAYING: PEKKA KUUSISTO MIGHT AS WELL HAVE WANDERED AROUND THE HALL AND WHISPERED

CONNECT INSIGHTS: 6.30pm Pre-concert performance by the music school of Douglas Academy
