Leading Quartet

Meta4 Jaakko Kuusisto: Wiima Igor Stravinsky: Concerto in D for string orchestra Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 3, E-flat major op. 55 “Eroica” Meta4, one of Finland’s most successful string quartets, performs a double stunt in this concert with Turku Philharmonic Orchestra as it features as both the soloist and the conductor. Jaakko Kuusisto’s Wiima is based on a string quartet piece that Meta4 has toured the world with. Kuusisto’s piece is followed by Igor Stravinsky’s playful Concerto in D for string orchestra. In the second half of the concert, one of the cornerstones of symphonic music is performed as the orchestra takes on Beethoven’s heroic Eroica-symphony, originally written for Napoleon Bonaparte.
