This chamber music event centres on the 300-year-old wooden cruciform church in the village of Iitti, about 70 miles northeast of Helsinki. The high point of the festivities will be hauling a piano to the lookout point at Hiidenvuori for a watchnight concert. The pianist Laura Mikkola has served as Artistic Director of the festival from its very foundation.
This biennial international celebration brings a contingent of international stars, including leading figures in Finnish piano art and promising young pianists, to the concert halls of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. The 30th anniversary programme of PianoEspoo Festival in 2021 will be carefully designed by our Artistic Director, the celebrated pianist Paavali Jumppanen.
Nurmes Summer Concerts provide a refreshing review of art experiences delivered by great artists in concert halls, churches and even in a steam train, in the forest, or in the intimate ambience of a late evening concert.
Nurmes Summer Academy presents the performances of rising young talents to accompany the concert series. Audiences may follow teaching and lecture events, and you may even attend a private master class of your own! Pianists Tuija Hakkila and Anna Laakso are responsible for plotting the artistic direction of this event.
Finnish and international artists will bring memorable chamber music experiences to the Finnish capital, delighting all friends of urban summer events at a wide variety of venues in the historic surroundings and downtown districts of the city, and focusing particularly on its unique art nouveau concert halls. A fascinating programme, audience-friendliness and reasonable ticket prices are integral aspects of this annual event.
