Rediscover the repertoire with Pekka Kuusisto
With Pekka Kuusisto, music is in the blood. As the grandson of an organist and composer and the son of a jazz musician and music teacher, it came as little surprise when young Pekka began to display his supremacy on the violin. But after becoming an established name in the classical music scene as both a director and soloist, winning the 1995 International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition and becoming the first Finn to do so, the real surprises began to arrive. Instead of remaining in the comfort of the classical world, Kuusisto likes to span the musical spectrum and find unlikely and unexpected collaborators from all over the world. Experiencing a Pekka Kuusisto performance means hearing everything from Finnish folk singing to experimental electronic improvisations. Not many artists can say they have collaborated with performers as diverse as pianist Hauschka, Dutch professor of neuropsychology Erik Scherder and folk singer Sam Amidon. If you want to experience the freshest and most exciting talent in classical music for a generation, you’re in the right place. Buy or sell your Pekka Kuusisto tickets right here on StubHub.
Ancient tradition, fresh sound
Classical music’s reputation for being old-fashioned or irrelevant is not safe as long as Pekka Kuusisto is around. His left-field perspective of the traditional repertoire and his incorporation of less well-known pieces has been nothing less than a breath of fresh air in both the classical and general musical worlds. His musical openness has even led him to perform with a number of well-known acts, including Nightwish and The National. Kuusisto continues to push the boundaries as both performer and director, becoming Artistic Director of the highly respected Meidän Festivaali (or Our Festival) in the Finnish town of Järvenpää, the home of legendary composer Jean Sibelius. His radical on-stage antics, such as teaching the audiences at the BBC Proms to sing a Finnish folk song while he played the fiddle, are already the stuff of legend, and represent precisely the character of a man who has invigorated the contemporary music world.
