Kotka Concert Hall Keskuskatu 33, Kotka

The programme for this concert is an imaginative mixture of old and new. The new work by Samuli Ahonen was composed for the Kymi Sinfonietta and the winner of its category in the IV Uuno Klami Composition Competition for children and young people. Outi Tarkiainen’s The Seasons of Love is a paean to the power of love that changes with the different phases in life. Representing older music is the first violin concerto by Mozart, with the magnificent Kotka-born Essi Höglund as the soloist. The delightful Symphony No. 1 by Louise Farrenc is enjoying a renaissance in orchestras’ repertoire, and not without reason. The conductor is the versatile Ruut Kiiski, now making her first appearance with the Kymi Sinfonietta.
