Huvila Festival Tent Helsinki
To start the Residency Series this fall on October 8th, violinist Ilya Gringolts challenges Pietro Locatelli, a virtuoso like him from the 18th century. In the second concert on November 5th, Antti Tikkanen and FiBO Singers crack the secret musical code of Bach’s solo partita in D minor. On December 1st, the season culminates in a broad variety of Baroque orchestra music and the premiere of a piece by Jukka Tiensuu.
What would the Finnish Baroque Orchestra's August be without concerts in festivals and summer concert series? This August, you can hear FiBO four different times: 13 Aug in Hollola Church (Lahti Organ Days), 22 Aug in the Huvila Tent (Helsinki Festival) and 31 Aug in Porvoo Cathedral's Summer Concert Series and in Espoo Cathedral as part of the Organ Nights and Aria Festival. Learn more about these concerts here.
What will the spring of 2018 bring? Alto Susanne Langner, especially known for her interpretations of Bach, kicks off the series as FiBO’s soloist on February 9th. The second concert, a concert version of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, will be performed twice on April 27th and 29th. The series comes to an end on May 18th with a visit by violinist Amandine Beyer, who charmed audience during her last stay in Finland.
