STOCKHOLM | BERWALDHALLEN 23. August

BALTIC CELEBRATION. THE CENTENARY OF THE BALTIC STATES | BALTIC SEA FESTIVAL

Both Béla Bartók and Bohuslav Martinů lived and worked in a war-torn Europe. They lived through two world wars, watched their native countries in different ways transform due to, and in response to, the threats and dangers of the world around them. Naturally, such experiences will have an impact on one’s artistic expression and this dramatic period can be sensed in both Bartók’s Music for Strings and Martinů’s Double Concerto. In the violin concerto, Distant Light, Pēteris Vasks depicts bitter-sweet childhood memories and tries to bestow calm comfort upon the world. 2018 is the centenary of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania becoming independent states and the concert bill spans all of the Baltic States.
