Carnegie Hall Presents

Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra

Tuesday, May 9, 2023 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Susanna Mälkki by Jiyang Chen, Claire Chase by Walter Wlodarczyk
The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra returns to Carnegie Hall under the exceptional leadership of Susanna Mälkki, a conductor revered for “the absolute integrity of her music-making” (Chicago Tribune) and ability to “invest anything she touches with persuasive grandeur” (San Francisco Chronicle). Mälkki’s critically acclaimed Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage debut came in 2022 when she lent her talents to conducting the New York Philharmonic, and it will be a thrill to see her lead her nation’s own Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra in this all-Finnish program. Hear masterworks by Sibelius and a transportive piece by Kaija Saariaho—an ideal showcase for Debs Creative Chair and endlessly creative flute virtuoso Claire Chase.
