This program brings together three of the most brilliant and creative voices in the music world today: Pekka Kuusisto, Tyshawn Sorey and Vijay Iyer. Kuusisto leads the SPCO in core repertoire by Beethoven and Ravel, as well as the Midwest premiere of an SPCO co-commission by Iyer, a jazz pianist of limitless range who is becoming increasingly known for his classical compositions. Sorey leads his new work Autoschediasms, a conducted improvisation in which his gestural cues will elicit musical responses from Kuusisto and the SPCO players.
