About The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra
The intrepid Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and violin “performer extraordinaire” Pekka Kuusisto (Strad) bring an ingenious program pairing classical works with contemporary innovation. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 gives way to a new companion piece by Swedish composer Anders Hillborg, Bach Materia, a witty, spirited work that hinges on improvisation. Haydn’s harmonically adventurous Symphony No. 99 is followed by Prokofiev’s agile “Classical” Symphony, which references Haydn’s genius.
