Shopping Angels

Time: Friday 28.6.2019 at 12.00
Place: Borgå Gymnasium

Baldur Brönnimann, conductor
Piia Komsi, soprano and cello
Chamber Orchestra Avanti!

La Ronde by Vinko Globokar is a piece based on improvisation where musicians end up in a circle of social and musical problems. The performers cannot know how the work starts not to mention how it will end.

Cellist and soprano coloratura Piia Komsi will perform Sky shopping – Homage to Brahms by Yugoslavian-born Jovanka Trbojevic. In this breath-taking piece, the soloist will simultaneously perform the soprano and cello part.

Djuro Zivkovich is an internationally reclaimed composer whose music is not yet widely played in Finland. With the piece On the Guarding of the Heart, he received the significant Grawemeyer award in 2013.

All the composers of this concert are from former Yugoslavia.
