Uusinta Ensemble: Honeymoons & Bad Dreams

Event Introduction

Two large-scale works, Sebastian Hilli’s bright Honeymoon and Tiina Myllärinen’s (Bad) Dreams come true, a quartet dedicated to the Ukrainian people, were both created as a result of Uusinta Ensemble’s collaborative commission projects over the past years. The relationship between these two quite different works opens up a musical world that is topical and rich in references. They are separated by Ann Cleare’s musical metaphor about waves and a cobalt-blue ocean that extends beyond its performance duration.


Pre-concert discussion at 6.15–6.45 pm, Helsinki Music Centre, Paavo Hall, with composers Sebastian Hilli and Tiina Myllärinen, hosted by Tuuli Lindeberg, the artistic director of Musica nova Helsinki.
