Kauniainen Music Festival 2017Signum

Kauniainen Music Festival is arranged for the eighth time between 28 October and 5 November 2017.

Conductor and violinist Jan Söderblom, the festival’s new artistic director, has planned a bravely renewed program for the familiar platforms. Science and philosophy have gotten an even bigger role and scientific and philosophical discussions are sandwiched between the string quartet interpretations. Various workshops and pop-up concerts supplement the music and discussions, creating a unique mood.

During this year’s music festival, we several times investigate how the music and the discussion incite each other. Wunderkammer, Quattro e quattro and Chamber music on the way home are new parts, and represent the new elements of the program.

This year, we have invited several domestic string quartets; Meta4KamusBorea and The New Helsinki Quartet, and international ones; Long Island String Quartet LISQ from Sweden and David Oistrakh String Quartet from Russia.
