a Live YouTube Broadcast
– A “hybrid” concert –
A Night of Sibelius!
Sibelius like you’ve never heard before! Nusheen and Ilona will explore Sibelius’ later chamber music works that were written around World War 1. As Finland was declaring its independence from Russia, Sibelius was credited with having given a unified sound to Finland. Through his smaller, more intimate chamber works, Nusheen and Ilona will delve into what elements of Sibelius’ music was so unique for its time.
