EBU Christmas Concert

21.12.2008 3pm Kallio Church, Helsinki

Helsinki Chamber Choir, conductor Nils Schweckendiek

In a live broadcast around Europe, the Helsinki Chamber Choir performs familiar and less familiar Christmas music from eight countries.  The world premiere of Einojuhani Rautavaara’s new work Our Joyful’st Feast forms the climax.

An YLE Culture event.  Admission free.
We have several good orchestras in our country, but only because composers know the Finnish Radio Chamber Choir do they not hesitate to write radical, unusual, rhythmically and tonally demanding thoughts and innovations also in choral music.

composer
