Helsinki Early Music Festival: Plague, Peace and Party

Postmodern Baroque music from the 17th century

Three period orchestras from three different countries have joined forces to overcome the geographic boundaries of countries and continents. During this concert, each ensemble will present its own musical colours before merging jointly in a musical melting pot where the combined forces create a new sound, each set with its own national stylistic twist. Plague, Peace and Party presents music from the 17th century that tackles questions of our modern society.

The Hardanger fiddle is a typical Norwegian instrument that will have a special place in our programme, and not only in the “peaceful” second segment. Agnes Ida Pettersen’s new composition “Peace” is written for a delicately balanced ensemble of Hardanger fiddle, strings, lute and harpsichord.

Trad. (Finland/Norway/Quebec) – Verdier – Buxtehude – Pettersen – Charpentier – Lully – Praetorius – Corelli
