Kammermusikfestival in Kuhmo

Jedes Jahr im Juli erobern die Kammermusik und begnadete Kammermusiker das in der ostfinnischen Region Kainuu gelegene Kuhmo. »Ein meisterhaft gestaltetes Programm, unvergessliche Konzerte sowie die Schönheit der Natur und die weissen Nächte öffnen die Sinne für höchste Genüsse«, erwarten Sie bei uns in den finnischen Wäldern«, so der künstlerische Leiter des Festival, Vladimir Mendelssohn.

Janne Thomsen:
My Kuhmo - "Kuhmo is a real melting pot
of musical talent worldwide."

For two frenetic weeks, from 9. - 22 July, Kuhmo in Eastern Finland is host to a chamber music festival attracting thousands of music lovers. In that fortnight, this town of 9,000 inhabitants echoes to the sound of music against a backcloth of a lake that almost laps the walls of the concert halls in the clear, unbelievable northern light.

The concerts are held at the Kuhmo Arts Centre, in the Lentua Hall renowned for its excellent acoustics, at the festival's cult locale, Kontio School, and in Kuhmo's beautiful wooden church. The concert venues are all within walking distance of one another, or bicycles are a popular means of getting about, for artists and audiences alike. Music is everywhere, there are concerts from morning to late at night, and people just live for the music. In the evenings, gathered round an open fire in the yard of the festival restaurant, musicians and festival-goers get together and strike up friendships. Information: www.institut50plus.de
