Perttu Haapanen (1972) is one of the leading Finnish composers of his generation. Vocal music forms a large part of his output and he is particularly interested in exploiting the transformational possibilities of his chosen texts. At this short concert the Helsinki Chamber Choir presents three of his most recent works, from 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Free admission, programme 10€

In collaboration with: The Parish of Meilahti

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.
