This unique celebration gives the audience an intimate chamber music experience by the historic shores of Lake Tuusula with an unconventional, multi-artistic and intellectually riveting programme. Our Festival keeps listeners on their toes by continually re-inventing and challenging itself under the inspired artistic direction of the Kamus Quartet.

A week of top-class concerts with leading Finnish and international performing artists at several concert venues in unique and scenic surroundings. Our chamber music entertains audiences at churches, chapels, village halls and other interesting venues in the district. Our programme respects the classical tradition, while reserving a place for contemporary music and premiere performances. We also seek to transcend artistic boundaries, for example by combining music and text. Artistic Director Anna Aminoff was a founder of this festival in 2006.
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.
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.
Splendid musicianship is the hallmark of this unique festival, with international artists performing in a wide range of concerts. Professional musicians, students and hobbyists are all welcome to enrol on our courses, and the opportunity to follow the preliminary and final rounds of an international soloist competition should not be missed. Lieksa is a small town in North Karelia close to the Eastern border of the European Union, with enchanting natural landscapes and a wealth of leisure time opportunities accompanying the festival. This is the largest art music event of any kind in the region, and also the largest brass music festival in the Nordic countries.
