Midi Boréal, Folk&Baroque from Finland
A delicate and joyful brunch-concert.
Did you know ? Finland is a paradise for musicians and music lovers. We are delighted to offer you this concert supported by the Cultural Institute of Finland.
The audacious baroque violinist Kreeta-Maria Kentala and the harpsichordist Matias Häkkinen offer us a colorful project, mixing Finnish folk music and baroque music. A surprising program, as would be an aurora borealis at noon in summer.
Violinist Kreeta-Maria Kentala is a true figure of early music in the Nordic countries. Her ability to go from Bach's sonatas to the traditional tunes of his Finnish village is impressive and seductive.
Matias Häkkinen is a highly regarded versatile musician. He has a broad repertoire ranging from Renaissance to contemporary music, with a particular interest in music of the late 17th century.
