Kannelmäki Church Helsinki
What might Jean Sibelius's Lemminkäinen sound like during the composer's lifetime, when the string instruments had gut strings, and the wind instruments were different from the current ones? The work is now being performed - for the first time in the world since Sibelius's time - with instruments according to the composing era. The concerts are in Järvenpää, Lahti and in Loviisa in September.
The Nordic Baroque Scene (NBS) is a cooperation project between four Nordic baroque orchestras, which, for example, aims to implement various joint projects and spread information about the high standard of the Nordic baroque orchestras. NBS also organizes a baroque singing competition! In an interview the executive directors of the orchestras will tell you more about the project and its goals.
