IN ROMANTIC POETRY, night is often the time for love, peace and inspiration. Alban Berg stretches the frontiers of tonal music, but has chosen romantic poetry, as did Franz Schubert before him. In contrast to these texts the recital includes music by important living German composers Wolfgang Rihm and Aribert Reimann, who are inspired by the darkness and unpredictability of the night. Soprano Iida Antola and pianist Daria Tudor are currently studying at Universität der Künste in Berlin.

Admission free, programme 10 €

In collaboration with: The Parish of Meilahti

Iida Antola

Daria Tudor
The lines of each section of the choir were straight and clear, as if played by instruments, and yet soft and flexible, supporting an unbroken sense of breathing. Each group sang with pure intonation and the resonance between the voices took on a life of its own, so that the whole space was filled with ringing colours.
