Three orchestras together again!

Helsinki’s independent orchestras Avanti!, UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and the Finnish Baroque Orchestra (FiBO) will once again join their forces in the spirit of AUF cooperation. In September, the concert “Music for everyone” breaks boundaries but combines different eras and styles at Musiikkitalo. The orchestras play together and separately works that combine old and new, light and serious. The conductor of the concert is Taavi Oramo.

The crown of the concert is Sampo Kasurinen’s new premiere work, which is tailored to the unique composition of the AUF orchestras. The composer promises a work that is influenced by jazz music, baroque tradition and contemporary music: “My goal is to find a compositional whole that would merge orchestras together rather than construct stylistic contrasts”.

Baroque and jazz also collide in Henry Purcell’s The Fairy Queen series. Alongside the original versions performed by the Finnish Baroque Orchestra, you will hear how Baroque dances turn into jazz with UMO Helsinki. The jazz arrangements are made by Austrian composer Ursula Reicher.

The Avanti’s quartet plays Helena Winkelman’s Papa Haydn’s Parrot. The musicians from the ranks of the all three orchestras also perform Arvo Pärt’s enchanting composition Fratres and Michael Torken’s Adjustable Wrench, in which instrument combinations and energy are adjusted as if by turning a wrench.
