Thinking about the im- mortality of the crab – premiere of new work for orchesta with Helsinki Chamber Orchestra
Time & Location
About the Event
Kontakt! is a concert by four young composers in which the Helsinki Chamber Orchestra will perform their new works for orchestra.
The name of the concert stems from a word meaning “connection” and reflects its theme of shared introspection and common ground. Each piece incorporates the personal voice of its composer as well as reflects upon contact as a subject.
The concert is produced in collaboration with composers Leevi Räsänen, Robert Ruohola, Rolf Gustavson and Touko Niemi, and the Helsinki Chamber Orchestra. We welcome the audience to call into the vast emptiness of space, to paint their dreams, awaken to cease all action, and to sink into a world of sound.
