Spanish multi-instrumentalist and instrument maker Abraham Cupeiro captured our audiences’ hearts the very first time he visited us in 2020. Tonight we hear the new project by the brilliant instrument maker in a magical, breath-taking blend of light and music. ‘Pangea’ alludes to a time about 200 million years ago when the present continents were still all joined together. Continents and cultures unite in this concert through music and light in a way that is both inspiring and entertaining. The conductor is one of the Kymi Sinfonietta’s own musicians, Dimas Ruiz Santos. He and Cupeiro have recorded the music with a top London orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic. Our concerts are part of the programme for the “Waves! Kotka Light and Sound Art” festival.
