Scheherazade · KARI KRIIKKU

Schedule

Venue

Esplanade Concert Hall

ARABIAN NIGHTS

Finnish composer Kimmo Hakola’s Clarinet Concerto stamps its mark in the genre with modernity and rambunctious energy, laying out arresting rhythms and themes - including the dance celebrations of a Yiddish wedding  - that cannot help but grab attention. Described as a roaring success for the composer, the concerto will see its Singapore premiere by acclaimed Finnish clarinettist Kari Kriiku and promises to be a wild ride. Rimsky-Korsakov’s interpretation of the Arabian Nights, the popular Scheherazade suite, completes the evening’s delights for the senses.
