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.
This top class biennial piano festival will once again bring leading Finnish and international concert pianists and rising young performers to the finest concert venues in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.
Lieksa provides an incomparable venue for brass music, and the annual Brass Week brings together a large cohort of Finnish and international brass musicians. The programme will include a broad range of concerts, brass music courses, and an international trumpet competition, plus a generous assortment of fringe events, free admission concerts, outdoor musical performances and children’s events. We shall also arrange an international euphonium competition in 2018.
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.
