The orchestral concert is at the core of UNM’s values: Nordic cooperation, dialogue between generations and realising the wildest visions of young composers. A unique joint effort of the Tampere music scene, the concert bring together musicians from Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, Tampere Orchestra Academy and Tampere Cappella, led by the stellar Emilia Hoving. The programme consists of the Finnish premieres of Finn Shields’ Chthonic, Matias Vestergård Hansen’s …And Through It’s Darkness and Marianna Liik’s Kurzschluß, and the Nordic premiere of the grand Become Desert by Pulitzer-winning American composer John Luther Adams.In Become Desert the ensembles are placed at security distances from each other and the audience. ‘At last an opportunity to experience what it feels like when music sounds all around. A feeling all but forgotten this year’, yearns festival leader Lauri Supponen.
