About This Performance

The husband-and-wife duo of violinist Erin Keefe (concertmaster of the Minnesota Orchestra and a Curtis faculty member) and conductor, clarinetist, and composer Osmo Vänskä joins young musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music in this touring ensemble. Built around the octet version of Jean Sibelius’s evocative tone poem En Saga, this eclectic program features cherished classics and striking, early twentieth-century works such as Erwin Schulhoff’s fiery, folk-influenced Concertino for flute, viola, and double bass.
