|Part 2 - Concert in Cerisy Abbey, Normandy, France (2009)|
This is the second hald of the concert.
The finnish Kirkkonummi Chamber Orchestra plays mainly in Kirkkonummi, a town of 37,000 inhabitants located 30 km west of Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Approximately a third of the musicians are professionals and a third amateurs. The remaining third are future professionals who mostly study at the Conservatory of Helsinki and the Sibelius Academy. The Orchestra is thus halfway between a professional and an amateur ensemble, having almost professional level together with the joy of playing of amateurs.
Founded in 1972 as a chamber orchestra, it is for years now a small orchestra of 34 players. The repertoire has also expanded and now also includes symphonies and concerts of Beethoven, Brahms, Sibelius, Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky. With the addition of choirs, the orchestra has also performed great oratorios and passions of Bach, Handel and Haydn. Rehearsals are usually once a week and live concerts with new programs about once a month. Several different conductors lead the orchestra in turn. The soloists are mostly young talents who have not yet had the chance to play with professional orchestras. During the summer of 2009, the orchestra has toured Normandy, where this recording was made. The conductor was Mr. Toby Hoffman, a professional Canadian musician with an international career. The violon soloist on Mendelssohn is a confirmed professional player this time, i.e. Mr Olivier Pons, a French violonist. The concert was organized by the Festival "Musique en Côte De Nacre” (Music on the Coast Of Nacre).
The recording is split in two parts on our web site.
