FIRE AND ICENow here’s an extremely tantalising double bill. The renowned Finnish ensemble, the Kamus Quartet, opens the evening with two works: Stenhammar’s extremely poignant Quartet n° 6 and Aulis Sallinen’s Quartet n° 3 “Some Aspects Of Peltoniemi Hintrik's Funeral March”, a didactic work, composed from a popular Swedish theme, aimed at giving the listener the taste for dissonances. After this intimate beginning it’s time to make way for the Belgian National Orchestra and its special guest, the Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili, for a grand symphonic concert dedicated to the Scandinavian triumvirate of Sibelius, Grieg and Nielsen.
