This summer and fall, Finnish classical and contemporary classical music will be performed all around Europe as the Baltic Sea Youth Philharmonic and MDR Leipzig Symphony Orchestra, both under baton of Kristjan Järvi, have chosen compositions by old and new Finnish masters for their tour programmes. One of the season’s highlights will be a performance of Selim Palmgren’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in the Gewandhaus Leipzig, with pianist Pauli Kari and MDR Lepzig Symphony Orchestra on June 21. This will be the kick-off for a project that will unveil Palmgren’s work to German and eventually to international audiences. Performances, broadcasts and recordings for Palmgren’s concertos Nos. 1 – 5 will be scheduled. Another Finnish highlight will be the worldpremiere of the GREEN Concerto by Finnish composer Severi Pyysalo performed by Pauli Kari and the Baltic Sea Youth Philharmonic at the opening of the Usedom Music Festival in Germany on 19 September. The festival is focusing on Finland this year. Summer Solstice Celebration June 21, Gewandhause, Leipzig, Germany Usedomer Musikfestival September 19–October 10, Usedom, Germany
