Today LAWO Classics releases an album of two of Olli Mustonen’s chamber works: String Quartet No.1 and Piano Quintet, with the Engegård Quartet featuring Olli himself in the piano. The recording of his String Quartet No. 1 (2016), commissioned and in 2017 premiered by the Engegård Quartet, is a significant milestone in the collaboration between Mustonen and the Norwegian quartet.
Coinciding with this release, tonight with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Mustonen performs Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini under the baton of Elim Chan, followed by a late-night chamber music concert featuring Mustonen’s own Piano Quintet.
