Master conductor Valeri Gergijev will once again bring the world famous St. Petersburg Mariinski Theatre Orchestra and soloists to Mikkeli next summer. Initially organised as an intimate chamber music celebration in 1992, our festival has grown into one of the leading classical music events of the Finnish cultural summer.

Leading artists have been providing unique experiences for our audiences in the splendid cultural landscapes of Southwest Finland since 1999, with programmes ranging from familiar classics to the very latest chamber music performed in intimate manor houses and churches.
Leading chamber musicians will transfix the town of Kuhmo in Eastern Finland this July. A skilfully designed festival programme, inimitable concerts, beautiful surroundings and sunlit nights will open the senses to new and sublime delights. We shall celebrate our golden jubilee season in summer 2019.
This unique celebration is dedicated to woodwind music, with a programme that will delight lovers of old and new music alike. In addition to chamber and orchestral concerts, there will also be jazz, folk and children’s music, together with master classes taken by leading professional musicians.
RUSK festival combines superior chamber music with various artistic disciplines in a melting pot where creativity can flow in exotic contexts, even during a darker and chillier time of year. The distinguished Artistic Directors of the festival are the clarinettist Christoffer Sundqvist and the composer Sebastian Fagerlund.
