Ville Matvejeff 9

Ville Matvejeff leads his first season as Artistic Director of the Turku Music Festival in a theme of symphonic dance. Focusing on music written for and inspired by the art form, he leads the Turku Philharmonic in repertoire from Bernstein’s West Side Story to the world premiere of Olli Virtaperko’s Concerto for amplified cello and orchestra, jointly commissioned by the Turku Music Festival and the Jyväskylä Sinfonia. A musical polymath, Matvejeff can be seen across the festival as Artistic Director, Conductor and in recital as a pianist performing Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time.
