The programme included less often performed Apocalyptica's music, which conductor Jaakko Kuusisto has adapted for the 25-musician Avanti! orchestra.
Since The Avanti! Chamber Orchestra was formed in 1983 by conductors Esa-Pekka Salonen, Olli Pohjola and Jukka-Pekka Saraste, the orchestra has had a tremendous influence on music in Finland. An ensemble that varies in size from a string quartet to a symphony orchestra, it specializes in no particular genre. Rather, it is proud to be a specialist in all styles with a strong sense of responsibility for the music of today. Avanti! tours regularly in Finland and all of the world.
