AUF, also known as Avanti!, the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and FiBO or the Finnish Baroque Orchestra, will host Rajaton which is celebrating its 25th anniversary at AUF's annual autumn concert. So this time, let AUF be the unique experience RAUF! In the concert, new and old will meet in the landscapes of London, New York and the home country. Improving the world as a whole will not be forgotten. The ambiances of the concert move from intimate and the most sensitive moments to fire-like co-music and soundscapes from gamba music to the sound of cattle, a walking stick, speech and singing to various orchestral sounds.

The theme of Avanti’s repertoire is memories: In Anna Clyne’s work, they relate to the humming old man who walks with the help of a walking stick, in David Lang’s work, the sound of cattle. The Finnish Baroque Orchestra brings touching, sensitive and danceable baroque gems from the 16th and 17th centuries to the stage. Dowland’s works from the collection Lachrimae, or Seven Tears, and Holborne’s music can provide a touchpad for current darker feelings or intimate beauty. The dance movements of Purcell’s series, on the other hand, engage the living world of baroque music. The big band of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra will take them to New York, where related works will be premiered by Ed Partyk and Ursula Reicher, among others. Well, that’s something!

Rajaton culminates the concert by performing with the AUF bands in various combinations. Unique arrangements for varying constellations arouse the curious mind. The names of the composers are Anna-Mari Kähärä, Aili Ikonen, Jussi Chydenius, Jaakko Kuusisto, Erik Bosio and Soila Sariola. The themes of the songs vary from texts that take a stand in what is happening in the world today to texts that embrace the world. The text written by Juha Itkonen for Jaakko Kuusisto's song We Deny It is a message towards America in the midst of the energy crisis. The new song Running Out of Time, on the other hand, is reminiscent of the humanitarian emergency in Ukraine. The sound is limitless, Rajaton!
