Concert - Circle of Silence
The 2019–2020 Circle of Silence concert series at Flagey opens with a concert by Helsinki Chamber Choir. Circle of Silence brings together European concert houses from around the Baltic Sea, and the music to be heard is inspired by nature and silence.
While the composers of the Helsinki Chamber Choir concert come from Finland and Estonia, the lyrics they have selected weave together a variety of threads from all over Europe and also reach across the Atlantic Ocean. The programme features well-loved choral masterpieces by the Finnish composers Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) and Einojuhani Rautavaara (1928–2016) and a selection of compositions by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt (b. 1935).
Led by its artistic director, Professor Nils Schweckendiek, Helsinki Chamber Choir is the only professional chamber chorus in Finland.
