Finnish fireworks

Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest
  • Sat 17 Sep ’22
    Grote Zaal

A dazzling programme that spans from Gershwin's fireworks to Sibelius's Northern Lights

On Saturday 17 September, De Doelen will transform into an intimate speakeasy bar during our Late Summer Spirit in which you will be taken on a whirlwind journey of discovery. The Finnish conductor Tarmo Peltokoski (22) takes you along with the orchestra into his musical world. From breathtaking fireworks in Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue to a wild love affair in Strauss' Don Juan: be surprised by the versatility of these musical pieces.

When the concert is over, the exploration doesn't stop. While the DJ provides atmospheric background music, you can enjoy a delicious cocktail and celebrate a good start to the late summer!

Prices include a drink before the concert and a cocktail after the concert.

"Er klonk waarschijnlijk al Sibelius uit een transistortje bij Peltokoski’s geboorte: hij dirigeert uit het hoofd en kent de muziek tot in zijn tenen."
