EBU Christmas Concert

21.12.2008 3pm Kallio Church, Helsinki

Helsinki Chamber Choir, conductor Nils Schweckendiek

In a live broadcast around Europe, the Helsinki Chamber Choir performs familiar and less familiar Christmas music from eight countries.  The world premiere of Einojuhani Rautavaara’s new work Our Joyful’st Feast forms the climax.

An YLE Culture event.  Admission free.
The 23-strong Finnish chorus was an unbeatable exponent of this piece [Rautavaara's Vigilia], showing not only their technical discipline but also a breathtaking range of sonorities.
