To celebrate the centennial of Leonard Bernstein's birth, Music Director @ludovic_morlot has picked "Wonderful Town," a rarely heard score by the American composer. “I once fell upon a New Year’s Eve performance of ‘Wonderful Town’ in Berlin,” explains Morlot. “Perhaps it helped that the night was festive. But I was smiling all the way.” Bernstein wrote the musical in a frantic four weeks, giving the music its unique zing — exactly the feeling Morlot wants to share. "His music reminds us how generous he was in all respects, as a conductor, composer and educator. He had a tremendous love for life and for people.” Read more at the link in our bio and catch #WonderfulTown on June 14 & 16! (📷: @brandonpatoc, from #sonicevolution in November 2016)

A beautiful end to the night: following this evening's performance of Sibelius' "Kullervo," Timo Alakotila (piano) and Vilma Timonen (kantele) performed selections of Finnish folk music. The kantele, a type of harp played played on the lap, is Finland's national instrument. Alakotila and Timonen also played the prelude for tonight's program, which ingeniously wove excerpts from Sibelius' music with the folk music that might have inspired him. You can read more in our interview with Thomas Dausgaard — link in bio. (📷: @myearsareopen / camera provided by @glazerscamera) #listenboldly #seattlesymphony

Crafting a beautiful, inspiring performance takes careful attention to detail — but when the performance comes, it's all about the story and the music! Principal Flute @demarremcgill confers with Principal Guest Conductor and Music Director Designate Thomas Dausgaard in this photo from rehearsal. We have two more performances of Sibelius' "Kullervo" on Saturday and Sunday! Find out more at the link in our bio. 📷: @brandonpatoc #seattlesymphony #listenboldly

Thomas Dausgaard is back in town! This week he's leading thrilling performances of Sibelius' "Kullervo," a grim but fascinating symphonic poem inspired by a Finnish legend. In the story Kullervo brings tragedy to all he meets — until he finds redemption at the point of his magical sword. Dausgaard leads our pre-concert talks this week, which start one-hour before the concerts. He'll take you on a deep-dive into the Finnish folklore and mytholody that inspired Sibelius' first major symphonic work. 📷: @brandonpatoc #listenboldly #seattlesymphony
