Finlandia

Cyprus : Finlandia

Join the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra on a captivating journey to the alluring musical sounds of Finland. Tonight’s programme features a musical selection that is uniquely Finnish and at the same time unreservedly individual. Jean Sibelius has been the central figure in creating a Finnish voice in music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His music bears the aura of his native land in its references to the Kalevala, the Finnish-language folk epic, and its allusion to folk music. Yet at the same time, it is distinguished by startlingly original adaptations of common elements: a fresh outlook on orchestral colour, and unorthodox treatments of triadic harmony and musical process.
