28.6. - 2.7.2017

CAMILLA NYLUND, JAAKKO RYHÄNEN, LEIF SEGERSTAM, SANTTU-MATIAS ROUVALI, ERKKI LASONPALO & HELSINKI SINFONIETTA AT THE HEINÄVESI MUSIC FESTIVAL 2017

The year 2017 marks the centenary of Finnish independence. The Heinävesi Music Festival celebrates the year by offering central works of Finnish classical music. The programme includes some of the most beloved compositions by Jean Sibelius like his famous violin concerto, the symphonic poem En Saga and the masterpiece Luonnotar (Daughter of Nature), symphonic poem for soprano and orchestra based on the first poem of the Finnish national epic Kalevala. The programme also presents precious rarities like Erkki Melartin’s Traumgesicht and Marjatta for soprano and orchestra based on the last poem of Kalevala and Uuno Klami’s oratorio Psalmus for two soloists, choir and orchestra. 

Three symphonic concerts form the foundation of the festival programme. Helsinki Sinfonietta, the emerging orchestra with young aspiring musicians — our orchestra in residence — will be led by two outstanding young conductors Santtu-Matias Rouvali — Chief Conductor of the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra and as from 2017/18 season also Chief Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony — and Erkki Lasonpalo, the artistic director of the festival, and the maestro himself, Leif Segerstam. 
This fascinating combination brings generations together and shows the master with his former students Rouvali and Lasonpalo from Sibelius Academy, Helsinki. Genius and experience meet with passion and young talent in Heinävesi!

The Heinävesi Music Festival traditionally has a strong focus on Lied and Chamber Music. Also this year our chamber music concerts in the Valamo monastery and Heinävesi Church offer a more intimate setting. The chamber music concerts welcome you to enjoy music by Schubert, Beethoven and Sibelius and the Lieder concert with Juha Kotilainen and Joel Papinoja presents the Finnish premiere of Jukka Ollila’s song cycle ”A Twisted Mirror” to the poems of William Blake. 

In the Valamo monastery the Helsinki Philharmonic Choir will perform parts of Vigilia by Sergei Rahmaninov and Einojuhani Rautavaara. 

The adventurous mind will find much to explore in Heinävesi during the festival. We also offer musical cruises through the lake scenery of Saimaa, along Finland’s most beautiful, narrow water route ”Heinäveden reitti”.

You are most welcome to join us and enjoy the music and the unique — one could say Sibelian — scenery of Heinävesi!
