In 2021, a young Finnish conductor named Tarmo Peltokoski conducted the Bremen Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra in Germany and so wowed the orchestra that – at age 21! – they employed him as their Principal Guest Conductor. Around the same time, he was offered the role of Music and Artistic Director of the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra.
In an amazing coup, Queensland Symphony Orchestra are able to bring this young rising star to Brisbane to conduct Sibelius’ Symphony No.2. Described by the composer as ‘a musical confession’, it spans a vast journey from the intimate to the epic, and we know with Peltokoski leading our musicians, you will be thrilled by every moment.
New Section Principal Trumpet Rainer Saville, will also demonstrate his chops performing French composer Henri Tomasi’s spectacular Trumpet Concerto.
