SIBELIUS ON A SUNDAY MORNING
The festival concludes with a ‘Sibelius on a Sunday Morning’ chamber concert on 9 September at the Sibelius Hall, a repeat by public demand of the corresponding concert at the 2017 festival. The dance work ‘On a string’, by the star dancer Minna Tervamäki and the choreographer and pioneer of modern flamenco Kaari Martin, is an interpretation of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto. The work juxtaposes tradition and modernity, Finnishness and internationality, the sensitive and the demonic. The performers approach Sibelius via the musicality and sensitivity of flamenco and the expressive means of contemporary ballet. At the Sibelius Hall the work will be heard and seen in an interpretation by four equally strong performers: the two dancers are joined on stage by violinist Minna Pensola and pianist Heini Kärkkäinen.
Tickets via Ticketmaster’s outlets and website in Finland and from the Sibelius Hall box office.
