“This concert features some of the most devastating works in Western music. Beethoven’s Great Fugue is considered the world’s first modern musical work, and even today it still retains its power to shock the listener. The works by Alkan and Ligeti toy with themes of perdition and hell, and the programme concludes with a heart-stopping Piano Quintet.” – Klaus Mäkelä
