OPENING CONCERT OF THE AUTUMN SEASON: THE MAGIC OF MUSIC!
31.08.2022 @ 19:00
The Kymi Sinfonietta begins its autumn season in cheerful mood – with a concert that invites us to enjoy the moment and let ourselves be carried along by the music. Multi-instrumentalist I-Han Fu is fast making a name for himself as a conductor, too, and tonight conjures up some lavishly colourful moods. In other words, we can look forward to some delicious shades of folk music and dance rhythms from Spain, Hungary, Poland and Romania, along with glimpses of a fairytale world in stage music by Sibelius and Mendelssohn. Petteri Iivonen, concertmaster of the Paris Opera, will generate lots of virtuosic energy in some breath-taking works for violin.
