Helsinki Festival will stage the Finnish premiere of Tero Saarinen Company’s new piece Zimmermann Trio.
Helsinki Festival will stage the Finnish premiere of Tero Saarinen Company’s new piece Zimmermann Trio. A commission for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, it premiered earlier this year at Walt Disney Concert Hall. This is a rare opportunity to see world-class contemporary dance at Helsinki Music Centre.

Zimmermann Trio binds together live music, dance and visuality in the holistically memorable and emotionally moving way that is characteristic of the works of choreographer Tero Saarinen. The dance lifts the music of Bernd Alois Zimmermann to the next level – just as the composer originally planned. Zimmermann’s impressive, cinematic cello concerto inspired Saarinen to handle themes of leaving and loss in the choreography.

The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra is conducted by Susanna Mälkki. Tero Saarinen Company’s dance soloists Satu Halttunen, Misa Lommi and David Scarantino perform together with cellist Oren Shevlin. Lighting and set designer Mikki Kunttu and costume designer Erika Turunen create a unique visual world on stage.

The concert ends with Richard Strauss’ impressive An Alpine Symphony. The dizzying tone poem, completed in 1915, carries the audience to the middle of a grand mountain landscape.

A commission for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Helsinki Festival, with support from the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation
