"ORIENT & OCCIDENT"

Wed 17.5.2017 at 19:00 Kotka Concert Hall
Thu 18.5.2017 at 19:00 Kouvola City Hall

We begin this spring concert with some wonderful music by Mozart and Mendelssohn. Towards the end, Arvo Pärt’s Orient and Occident takes us further east and south. The career of star soprano Keren Hadar has led her from songs and musicals to opera and classical repertoire, to say nothing of lighter music. Tonight we will hear her in sparkling Mozart, moving Bardanashvili and old, traditional songs from the Mediterranean region. The conductor is Andres Mustonen, a musical ambassador who tours the world’s concert halls at a feverish pace.
