The Helsinki Festival autumn comes to a brilliant end when Yuja Wang and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra perform at Helsinki Music Centre on Monday, 30 October. The concert programme includes Mozart, Beethoven, Stravinsky and Chopin.

This unique evening is complemented by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, playing their first-ever concert in Finland. Founded by conductor Claudio Abbado 20 years ago and called the world’s best chamber music orchestra, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra consists of 45 musicians from 20 different countries.
