By church boat to the natural surroundings of Myllysaari and the world of runic singing!
After his wedding in 1892, Sibelius travelled to Karelia to collect runic songs. Dirges and runic songs, their history and Sibelius’s journey are revealed in this narrative concert by the Pajolaine folk song duo.
The Lahti Symphony Orchestra reserves the right to make changes to the programmes and timing of concerts if the restrictions are required by the coronavirus infection situation.
