Young artists of the sum­mer: In borrowed feathers

Arranged and created by cembalist and pianist Sanni Antikainen, the concert features imaginative adaptations of works across the classical music world

Lainahöyhenissä, Sanni Antikainen

You can watch a free live stream of the concert on Youtube, 9 September, 19–20.30.

Something new, something old, something borrowed. Is it stylistically pure? Probably not, but all the more stylish for it! 

The programme features baroque, faux baroque, folk music, Romantic melodies, gems from musicals and French impressionism interpreted with some conventional and some not so conventional instruments. What does Brahms sound like on harpsichord and electric cello, or what about Debussy on instruments of the Baroque period? How is it different from playing Rameau on the appropriate instruments? What can be achieved by playing with styles and techniques?

The end result is a fascinating, beautiful and sometimes funny amalgamation of pieces from across centuries that somehow have the same undercurrent mood.
