Friday 5.11.2021 19.00 Season Concert
From 29/23/12 € + order fee. Ticket sales begin 9.8.2021. Espoo Cultural Centre

As different as Joonas Kokkonen and Kaija Saariaho are as composers, they both approached a sense of indescribable mystery in the works presented in this programmeKokkonen’s …durch einen Spiegel… was inspired by a spiritual vision, while Saariaho’s Nymphea Reflections owes something of its enigmatic sounds to the visual experience of the water-lily paintings of French Impressionist Claude Monet. A classical contrast is provided by the Symphonie à 17 parties by Belgian-French François-Joseph Gossec, known as the ‘composer of the revolution’. Leader of the concert is Janne Nisonen, concertmaster of the Tapiola Sinfonietta.
