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.
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 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.
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.
