The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra’s very own Maria Krykov performs as the soloist for Missy Mazzoli’s double bass concerto in a concert by this season’s artist-in-residence Pekka Kuusisto. The composer’s muse was a double bass built in 1580 and forgotten in an Italian convent for hundreds of years. “I imagined this instrument as a historian, an object that collected the music of the passing centuries in the twists of its neck and the fibres of its wood, finally emerging into the light at age 400 and singing it all into the world.”
