Pekka Kuusisto & Nico Muhly: Breaking Ground

Milton Court Artist-in-Residence

A portrait of Nico Muhly

Travel from rural Finland to bustling Manhattan and find the threads between J S Bach and Philip Glass as Pekka Kuusisto and Nico Muhly share their limitless musical world.

Muhly is one of the world’s most communicative living composers. Kuusisto believes that music is only truly alive when it’s forging a direct connection. These two extraordinary musical personalities bring together folk roots and urban energy to explore music that speaks to them – and in their hands, to us.
