Korsholm Music Festival 2023
Dear friend of musical experiences!
My first summer as festival director of the Korsholm Music Festival is approaching and my expectations are high – I can sense the enthusiasm and excitement! Our artistic director, having also just started his first year at the Music Festival, cellist Jan-Erik Gustafsson, has planned an amazing program under the theme of Momentum. Movement, power, and moments in their different forms run like a red ribbon from one concert to another. We have been inspired by Albert Einstein's words in planning the Music Festival: "Life is like riding a bicycle. To stay upright, you must be in motion.”
The theme composers of the Korsholm Music Festival in 2023 are the Finnish-Swedish Cecilia Damström, the Ukrainian-born Vladimir Agopov and Jaakko Kuusisto in memoriam. As a social sub-theme, we draw attention to the Baltic Sea during the festival. Among the summer’s artists are familiar musicians from previous years, but also many first timers at the festival. I hope that when you get to know the program, you will find favorites, interesting novelties, and attractive moments. Come along and experience Momentum with us – whether you're a first timer at the Korsholm Music Festival or a seasoned connoisseur!
