The inauguration of the NOSPR organs will take place on the 13th of January 13, 2023 at 19.30. That evening, the newest composition by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Concerto for organ and orchestra, will be performed for the first time, a work co-commissioned by NOSPR and its friends, the best concert halls in Europe.
The solo part will be performed by Iveta Apkalna – a charismatic Latvian organist who, as the first virtuoso of this instrument in the world, was honoured with the prestigious ECHO Klassik award.
Esa-Pekka Salonen will lead the orchestra not only in his own composition, but also in two works representing European modernism: the ballet-pantomime The Miraculous Mandarin by Béla Bartók and Symphony No. 4 by Witold Lutosławski.
