This will be the world premiere of Olli Kortekangas’ Partita Concertante, a work for cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, harp and percussion. The concert will also include Bach partitas and music by Schönberg. What a programme!

In honour of the sea, we shall hear words of wisdom, whalesong and beautiful classics. Every one of us can help to protect the Finnish Archipelago Sea in our own way.

The concert moves from light to shadows – it’s a combination of dark clouds as well as comforting pout clouds and sunshine. A specialty is Ralf Gothoni’s Life Views themed piano concerto for two pianists.
