University Symphony Orchestra

Kenneth Kiesler, conductor
Arianna Dotto, Winner, 2020 SMTD Concerto Competition, violin

The University Symphony Orchestra presents "Songs of the Ice, music from Scandinavia.” The concert opens with the American Premiere of Songs of the Ice by the young Finnish composer Outi Tarkiainen. She has said, “I see music as a force of nature that can flood over a person and even change entire destinies,” and “I have a fundamental longing for the northernmost regions, within me.” The concert continues with the dramatic Violin Concerto by Sibelius, featuring violinist Arianna Dotto, Winner of the 2020 SMTD Concerto Competition, and the Fourth Symphony (The Inextinguishable) by Danish composer Karl Nielsen. With brilliant and stark orchestral colors and a unique and powerful voice, Nielsen’s Fourth expresses humankind’s struggle to survive against adversity and violence, and his conviction that human spirit is inextinguishable.
