Notes & Reviews:

Beginning with the 2010-11 season, Saraste becomes principal conductor of the WDR Symphony Orchestra in Cologne. Saraste has done much to firmly anchor the music of Scandinavia in concert life, & gained broad acknowledgement for his great affinity with late Romantic & modern classical music. Born in Finland in 1956, he began his career as a violinist in the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, going on to study conducting at the Sibelius Academy. He is a guest conductor throughout Europe.
