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.
Sanni Antikainen, harpsichord and organ
Johanna Isokoski, vocals

Anna Pulakka, viola da gamba and baroque cello
