The Helsinki Chamber Orchestra and French Institute in Finland are happy and excited to invite you to the 2021 edition of the Francophonia Concert, marking the culmination of the “Mois de la Francophonie”! Audiences from France, Finland, and all over the world are welcome to listen to and explore the powerful sonorities of the organ combined to the might of a chamber orchestra. In a program that acts as a bridge between France and Finland, immerse yourself in a sound world full of stark contrast, between the reverencial Gothic Suite by Léon Boëllmann, the intimate Rakastava (The Lover) Suite by Jean Sibelius, and finally, the overwhelming Organ Concerto by Francis Poulenc. The concert will be live-streamed from Temppeliaukio Church on 11.03.2021 at 19:00, and therefore freely accessible all over the world! Performing on the Organ is our French guest Catherine Gouillard, and the Helsinki Chamber Orchestra is led by James Salomon Kahane.
