The Turku Music Festival is organising two back-to-back concerts at Wigmore Hall in London on Saturday 4 April 2020, at 11.00 and 14.00. Julian Rachlin is not only one of the world’s finest violinists but also the Principal Guest Conductor of the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra. The programmes were designed by Klaus Mäkelä, artistic director of the Turku Music Festival, who also performs at both concerts. The concerts are jointly produced with Wigmore Hall and are open to the public. Tickets are on sale in the Wigmore Hall sales channels. The purpose of the concerts is, as their title indicates, to showcase the Turku Music Festival to London audiences and thus to attract interest in the annual event.
“I am very pleased and proud to bring concerts of the Turku Music Festival to Wigmore Hall. It is a great honour to perform some of the world’s greatest music with my wonderful colleagues at this venue, while also raising awareness of the Turku Music Festival abroad,” says Klaus Mäkelä.
Tickets to both Turku Festival Showcase concerts at Wigmore Hall in London on Saturday 4 April are on sale on the Wigmore Hall website and at the Wigmore Hall ticket office in London.
