The 'Jupiter' Symphony is last and largest of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's symphonies. It is also, according to many, not only his best symphony, but the greatest symphony of the entire classical period, and opens this varied programme, led by guest concertmaster Jan Söderblom.

The concert also features Burleske by Richard Strauss, performed by the evening's soloist Armenian-Danish pianist Marianna Shirinyan. Shirinyan impressed concertgoers with her performance of Grieg's piano concerto with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Rumon Gamba in the spring of 2022. Shirinyan has received numerous awards for her inspired performance, including the Danish critics' award and the special culture award of DR, the Danish radio. The concert concludes with Richard Strauss's philosophical tone poem Death and Transfiguration, contemplating the deepest question of what awaits us beyond this world. Conductor is Eva Ollikainen.

*Soloist Arngunnur Árnadóttir,  who was originally supposed to perform at the concert, had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.
