A steaming hot concert with the best music stewed in America spiced with stardust! Joseph Alessi is Principal Trombone of the New York Philharmonic.
Trombone Concerto “A Stroll” (First performance in Finland)
Symphony No. 2
A concert that offers the hottest in American music right now – sprinkled with stardust! Joseph Alessi, Principal Trombone of the New York Philharmonic, commissioned a concerto from jazz master Chick Corea and attracted four enthusiastic orchestras to join the project, including the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. We received a most excellent piece, which begins with something quite rare in the world of symphony concerts: an improvisation! Chilean conductor Paolo Bortolameolli returns to Helsinki; in the spring of 2021, Bortolameolli captivated online audiences with his cheerful and dynamic command of the orchestra.
