John Storgårds celebrates his debut in South Korea

On June 29th John Storgårds celebrates his debut in South Korea with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. The first half of the concert will be dedicated to the probably most famous piece by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara: Cantus Arcticus incorporates recorded birdsongs from the Arctic Circle and North Finland – an interaction between nature and music. Afterwards, 22-year-old Han Kim will join for Karl Nielsen’s Clarinet Concerto. The evening will be concluded by Robert Schumann’s Spring Symphony, which is not only Schumann’s very first symphony but was also written in just four days in 1841 at the heights of his artistic work.
