Maybe it's something in the lingonberries -- but today Finland has one of the most exciting classical music scenes on the planet, reminiscent of Vienna in the 1780's or Moscow at the turn of the 20th century. Now, the Berkeley Symphony performs two works written in the last decade by two of Finland's most influential composers. Esa-Pekka Salonen's Nyx, named after the Greek goddess of night, weaves a tapestry of shimmering textures and otherworldly waves of sound. Kaija Saariaho's Adriana Songs explores the experience of bringing a child into the world during a time of war and global hostilities. The concert will conclude with Beethoven's profoundly brilliant Symphony No. 5. Grammy winner Kelley O'Connor, a mezzo soprano of "riveting stage presence" (The New York Times), will join the Symphony in this stunning conclusion to a standout season. Learn More

Great talk be4 show, Sam Adam's thing not so great, tho! Sounded like the violin was in pain and left out in the rain and the rest of the symphony players would not help! A relief when they joined in. Hey, Sam, be happier! Stop whining! The rest of the program was splendid tho; nice to see Joanna dancing for her orchestra.
There's a pre-concert talk beginning an hour before the performance.
