The evening’s piano concerto was composed for the sibling duo by Bryce Dessner, guitarist for the group The National. Also being performed in Finland for the first time will be Metacosmos, which was commissioned by the New York Philharmonic, and the rhythmic De Snelheid. The evening culminates with Delta, a composition by Jay Schwartz.
