World stars of classical music come to Musiikkitalo
One of the most sought-after violinists of his generation, Emmanuel Tjeknavorian first came to international attention when he won the prize for best interpretation of the Sibelius Violin Concerto as well as Second Prize at the Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in 2015.

At Helsinki Festival, he will perform his critically-acclaimed interpretation of one of the most famous violin pieces of the 20th century as the soloist of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra. The legendary orchestra is conducted by its Chief Conductor Yuri Temirkanov. The concert full of beloved classics opens with the music of one of Sibelius’ contemporaries, Denmark’s most significant composer, Carl Nielsen. Temirkanov has selected four extracts from the colourfully exotic music of the stage performance of Aladdin. The evening culminates with another orientalism-inspired suite, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, based on One Thousand and One Nights.
