In performances at the NeoArte Festival in Gdańsk and the Klang concert series at the Helsinki Music Centre, the Helsinki Chamber Choir and NeoQuartet will explore a world in which long-accepted truths can no longer be trusted. From the spiritual music of Ukrainian-born Galina Grigorjeva and Julia Wolfe's post-minimalist exhortation not to bear false witness through the nightmarish visions of Beat Furrer's enigma III, we arrive at Komm, a work by the young Hungarian composer Balázs Kecskés D. exploring new and constantly shifting worldviews and the looming sense of crisis that these can create. Olli Moilanen's new work examines humans' symbiotic relationship with nature and conjures up ways in which we can connect more fundamentally with our environment.
