Dalia Stasevska is one of the world’s most in-demand conductors, and she makes her much-anticipated WASO debut with a concert of Nordic masterpieces.

Opening with Sibelius’ popular Finlandia, Alexander Gavrylyuk then performs Grieg’s beloved Piano Concerto. Acclaimed at its premiere, it established Grieg’s reputation as the musical voice of his nation.

Evoking the spirit of Dalia Stasevska’s own Finnish homeland, the majestic beauty of Sibelius’ Symphony No.5 has ensured its place in the musical canon.


Dalia Stasevska

Dalia Stasevska’s charismatic and dynamic musicianship has established her as a conductor of exceptional versatility. Chief Conductor of Lahti Symphony Orchestra and Artistic Director to the International Sibelius Festival, Dalia also holds the post of Principal Guest Conductor of BBC Symphony Orchestra. Dalia has made several appearances with international orchestras and at the BBC Proms including the First Night of the Proms in 2023.

Alexander Gavrylyuk

A stunningly virtuosic pianist, Alexander is internationally recognised for his electrifying and poetic performances. His performance of Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.3 at the BBC Proms was described as “revelatory” by the Times and “electrifying” by Limelight. Alexander has performed with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including New York, Los Angeles, Czech, Warsaw, Moscow, Seoul and Rotterdam Philharmonics.
