The landscapes of Lake Tuusula form the crucible of the Finnish cultural world, providing the backdrop for a unique journey through the wonders of living chamber music. Artistic Director Pekka Kuusisto is expecting several leading musicians to take up his invitation to perform at the festival, as in previous years. We cannot guarantee that everything you hear will be safe and familiar, but open-minded audiences can rest assured of satisfaction.
Invigorating chamber music, philosophical debate and academic enquiry will come together at this fascinating festival amidst the autumnal ambience of an idyllic garden city within the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, with a wide range of workshops and some unprecedented surprises.
This unique series of late evening concerts complements the mediaeval stonewalled ambience of Espoo Cathedral with a versatile, high standard programme throughout the summer. Leading artists of vocal, organ, chamber and orchestral music provide memorable experiences on intimate summer evenings. The Artistic Director of Organ Night and Aria is the distinguished pianist Erkki Korhonen.
Held at the beginning of June, this high standard chamber music event delights the public with leading Finnish and international musicians and the stars of the future appearing as soloists and in ensembles of all sizes. The music reaches every corner of the town, providing memorable experiences for listeners of all ages. Admission to about half of the concerts is free of charge.
