Sibelius Inspiration Concert
Finnish cellist Jussi Makkonen and pianist Nazig Azezian perform a moving program that evokes the Finnish natural world that inspired Jean Sibelius. Through music, video, sound and light, audiences are transported to the floral splendor of the garden at Ainola, the magical moss forest at dusk, and the top of the impressive Koli in the midst of a thunderstorm.
The multimedia program is an experience. Sibelius compelling music, the narration and the videos filmed for the concert bring nature, as seen by the composer, palpably close to the listener.
Jussi Makkonen and Nazig Azezian are sponsored by Finlandia Foundation National and its Finland 100 Music Program, celebrating the 2017 centennial of Finlands Declaration of Independence.
Pre-Concert Lecture at 6:00 PM.
