On a String –
an interpretation of the Sibelius Violin Concerto

Minna Pensola, violin
Heini Kärkkäinen, piano
Kaari Martin & Minna Tervamäki, dance

Buy ticket

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. They believe that Sibelius’s Violin Concerto conveys its message with directness and honesty, and that it has a timeless, rebellious quality.
 

SIBELIUS FESTIVAL AT AINOLA 

Ainola –  the Sibelius family’s home in Järvenpää – is known as the place where Jean Sibelius found the peace in which a large proportion of his work as a composer is rooted. It was built in accordance with Jean’s and Aino’s wishes and, even today, their presence can be felt there. 

The concerts at Ainola offer a taste of the piano works by Sibelius that will be heard at the Festival.
