ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Epic. Heroic. Monumental. Prepare for an extraordinary musical journey when renowned Finnish conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste leads Mahler’s thunderous and blazingly theatrical First Symphony, a thrilling showcase for the Houston Symphony’s virtuosity and expressive power. Jaakko Kuusisto wrote his Violin Concerto to show off the skills of the phenomenally talented Elina Vähälä, and she joins the Symphony in these performances.
