Finnish conductor Dalia Staseyska has sent music critics scrambling for superlatives since she first appeared on the scene in 2015. “It’s been years since I’ve seen a conductor so fabulously energised and able to galvanise players to give their all,” enthused the Telegraph. “Passionate,” wrote the New York Times. “It was the kind of performance that, without trying to, had audience members roaring with applause after the first movement, then, at the end, immediately rising for a standing ovation.”  

She joins a preeminent pianist and Orchestra and audience favorite, the prodigiously gifted Emanuel Ax—“Manny” to his friends and admirers—who brings his “always thoughtful, lyrical, lustrous” style (The Washington Post) to Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17.  

Lutosławski’s Fourth Symphony is a rushing stream of music, shimmering and beautiful, then fiercely furious, all leading to an intensely dramatic finish.
