A week of top class concerts with international performing artists at several concert venues in unique surroundings. Our chamber music will enthral audiences at the churches and chapels of the district, and will also entertain people on a cruise ship, in village halls and manor houses, and in an old stable building. Larger symphony orchestras are also guests of the festival in interim years. Artistic Director Anna Aminoff was also a founder of this festival in 2006.
The Old Town in Rauma provides unique concert venues for this August celebration. Our programme of chamber music is a refreshing combination of familiar classics and lesser-known gems reflecting an annually changing theme.
The unique historical milieu of the old parish church of St Lawrence provides the heart of this superb musical experience, which gives pride of place to baroque music and period instruments while also accommodating musical works from other eras. Leading artists will place special emphasis on works not previously heard in Finland.
The finest mediaeval, renaissance and baroque compositions in the venerable cultural landscapes of Lake Rautavesi with leading Finnish and international early music artists. The concerts will take place in the mediaeval stone churches of Sastamala. An international master class and free admission events will complement the concert series.
