The concert will feature the first public performance of Meren laulu (Song of the Sea), commissioned by the Navy Band. It is based on traditional stories from the archipelago and musician-composer Stefan Stanciu has created a musical story framework around them.
Another highlight of the concert is a concerto for two pianos and an orchestra composed by Francis Poulenc. The concerto is a mix of strong percussionality and expressive beauty. Manning the grand pianos will be PianoDuo ConFuego, which consists of Maria Männikkö and Pauli Kari.
Other pieces in the programme include Overture für Harmoniemusik by Mendelssohn, Strauss’ Serenade in Eb for winds and Mackey’s Asphalt coctail.
The concert is about two hours long, including intermission.
