Finnish songbook: Defiance
Sibelius Academy students and teachers perform Finnish solo songs that are about power and defiance. What emotions are prompted by tenacity, force and majority–minority relations?
In four recitals entitled ‘Finnish songbook’, students and teachers of the Sibelius Academy perform solo songs that are quintessentially Finnish. The recitals explore various styles, moods and genres, mixing and matching old and new. The ‘Finnish songbook’ recitals give a voice to minorities and acknowledge their contribution to the building of Finland.
