Juho Pohjonen performs World Premiere of new Piano Concerto
16 Mar 2012
On 15 and 16 March 2012, Juho Pohjonen will perform the world premiere of a Piano Concerto by Aleksandar Simic with conductor Bojan Sudjic and the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra. The work, titled Zodiac, is a series of miniatures (rather than the typical three movement form) beginning with the sign of Aries and ending with Aquarius. As Mr Simic writes, "The whole idea of writing something like the Zodiac began many years ago, when I realized that very seldom were composers taking an innovative and imaginative approach to the wonderful and majestic medium of Piano and Orchestra."
