Whether the programme features Bach, Liget or even the music to a Buster Keaton silent film, one can always expect a unique performance by Israeli pianist Matan Porat. In this concert Porat presents his interpretation of a model Romantic piano concerto. The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra will also premiere a new composition by Veli-Matti Puumala that was commissioned for the orchestra to mark the Finland 100 centenary year. The composition explores the experience of art as the interplay of space and sound.

What does Finland sound like? Poems are played and music talks as actors Krista Kosonen and Hannu-Pekka Björkman take to the stage at the Helsinki Music Centre together with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. This special centenary concert reflects the national identity in verse and melodies.

Throughout time the great names in Finnish music have gone out into the world to spread the word about our own compositions. From the violin concerto of Jean Sibelius to the “French symphony” of Leevi Madetoja and the overture composed by Aulis Sallinen for the royal family of Monaco, music has been Finland’s most impressive export product. The guest soloists for this festive evening is Sergey Malov, who never ceases to surprise with his own personal interpretations.
