Suomi 100 – Finland through Music
As independent Finland is maturing up to 100 years this year, we are being presented a musical celebration on Finnish and Nordic themes. This insightful piano recital consists of music by Sibelius, Palmgren, Grieg, Prokofiev and Englund.
The idea of Finland is at first lightened up with improvisatory kantele music, reflecting on the mythical and prehistoric experience of a Northern individual. What follows are impressions on national folk songs and dances. We will also experience the cycle of the year corresponding to the changes in Nordic nature and life.
In the dramatic years of destiny during the Second World War, we will hear reflections from both the Finnish and Russian sides of the frontline. A new kind of humanism can be heard again in the works by Englund, which will lead us to the present day. Looking both back and forward, we are being left in search of a balance and harmony between our roots and the global world.
