QASIM NAQVI: Fjoloy (European premiere)

MODERN CHORAL CLASSICS side by side with brand new works, exploring various spaces in the Kiasma museum. György Ligeti represents the contemporary music canon, while Qasim Naqvi’s Fjoloy - in which the choir follows microtonal parts created on a synthesizer through headphones - is now performed for the first time in Europe. In Jaya Gāthā, Patiparn Jaikampan, winner of the Einojuhani Rautavaara Composition Competition in 2016, creates a magical surround effect by arranging the choir around the hall. Tiina Myllärinen also explores space in her new composition Railo, which highlights conflicts between the human inner and outer world.

Tickets: 20 / 15 / 8 € Ticketmaster

I can safely now agree with many of my international colleagues that they are probably the best choir anywhere in the world, particularly for contemporary music. I have worked with many choirs round the globe and have never had such good performances.
