“Urkuyö ja Aaria’s traditional Midsummer Evenings held on the eve of Midsummer’s Eve.

Mari Palo, soprano
Marko Hilpo, piano
Esa Pietilä, saxophone

The sweet sounds of a summer evening fill Espoo Cathedral just on the brink of Midsummer. The program features summer songs and instrumental music. Included are Ralf Gothóni’s arrangements of Finnish folk songs, beloved solo songs by Oskar Merikanto, and of course, the ever-charming Summer Night Waltz. The concert will also feature Sphere, composed by Esa Pietilä for solo saxophone, as well as music by Astor Piazzolla and Johann Sebastian Bach. In the atmosphere of a summer evening, the audience will also have the opportunity to sing along with the musicians in communal singing.”
