Event Introduction

The Cleveland Orchestra, one of the world’s most renowned symphony orchestras, will perform at Helsinki Festival.

The Cleveland Orchestra, one of the world’s most prestigious symphony orchestras and one of the “Big Five” United States orchestras, returns to Finland for the first time in nearly 60 years. The orchestra, which has rarely visited the Nordic countries, last performed in Finland in 1965. 

Founded in 1918, the orchestra enters its 23rd season led by top Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Möst, who also led the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in a memorable performance at the 2015 Helsinki Festival.

The Cleveland Orchestra is regarded as one of the world’s best orchestras, and in 2020, The New York Times named it the best in America. Under Welser-Möst, the orchestra has been honed to its technical and artistic peak.

The Cleveland Orchestra will perform Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto and Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony in the concert at Helsinki Music Centre. The concerto is Schumann’s only piano concerto and one of the most beloved solo concertos of the Romantic era. The soloist is perhaps the most famous piano superstar of the moment, Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson. At the 2023 Festival, Ólafsson performed a solo recital to a sold-out audience.
