Concert in cooperation with Vaasa City Orchestra. The orchestra’s autumn season begins with a musical match between Finland and Sweden. Born in Vaasa, Siri Brander was a contemporary of Jean Sibelius and an enlightened animal rights activist. Her short piece Elegy, together with Sibelius’ third symphony, frame the double concerto by Swedish Mats Larsson Gothen, with Sweden’s brightest string stars Cecilia Zilliacus and Torleif Thedéen as the soloists. This is a match where both countries will share the victory!
