24.6.—28.6.2020

The Heinävesi Music Festival celebrates the unique nature of Heinävesi. 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, Principal Guest Conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chief Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony — and Erkki Lasonpalo, the artistic director of the festival.

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 also a strong focus on Lied and Chamber Music. Our chamber music concerts in the Valamo monastery and Heinävesi Church offer a more intimate setting for reflecting the thematics of Nature.  In the Valamo monastery Church you will also be able to hear some Russian-orthodox music.

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

We are currently planning our programm for summer 2020. Follow our site.

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