Our 2019 programme will include the Italian baroque artist Giorgio Dellarole, BayanTonic (Lars Karlsson, Sweden, Öivind Farmen, Norway), and the splendid Russian ESSE Quintet from St Petersburg – with the Guardia Nueva tango orchestra naturally enjoying pride of place. This festival really brings out the extraordinary versatility of the accordion as a musical instrument in a classical, modern and light music context. The programme will also include dance, community singing and outdoor events.
This annual celebration encompasses several events, with theatre, high-class art exhibitions, design, gift items, open-air dances and musical events. So why not mix business and pleasure at Orivesi this summer?
