Young artists of the summer: Sebastian Hilli, composer
The backbone of the programme is formed by works from the Paraphrase sequence, where Hilli draws on the music of various composers and styles – incorporating elements of free jazz and acid house as well as Sibelius and the madrigals of Gesualdo. The programme further includes the string quartet Elogio de la sombra, inspired by the poetry of Jorge Luis Borges, and the guitar concerto confluence/divergence. The guitar soloist is Petri Kumela. This concert is supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland and by the Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland.
