KRISTINA KUUSISTO - PIA FREUND - KRISTIAN ATTILA 

8/7/2021
NIGHT CONCERT:
"DARK AND FIRE"

7.8 at 8 p.m.

Night concert in the courtyard of Villa Saarela

Kristina Kuusisto, bandoneon

Pia Freund soprano

Kristian Attila, piano

We start at 8pm, but make time as the playing and singing continues well into the night! Occasionally we enjoyed the buffet in the twilight of the lanterns in the garden.

For this concert, bandoneonist Kristina and I have invited pianist Kristian Attila. Kristian is from many of our concerts  a familiar musician to visitors to Villa Saarela - now he has promised to flash  for us the self-cabaree pianist of nature.  

 

The program promises a lot; we wade through the musical currents of Europe in the spirit of the 20th century and pick up the most entertaining and impressive colors for you to hear from there.  

 

We import extra heart rate from the United States and Argentina.

 

Among the composers with us are e.g. Kurt Weill, Astor Piazzolla, Martin Rohmann, Benjamin Britten, William Bolcom, Edith Piaf, Toivo Kärki…

 

Argentine composer Astor Piazzo is best known as an innovator of Argentine tango; he developed Tango Nuevo into which he mixed elements of jazz and classical music.

 

Piazzolla's instrument was a bandoneón, and Kristina specializes in Argentine tango - so, WAU what a night ahead!
