The 47th Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival begins on Sunday!

Each summer, Daniel Rowland performs and teaches at the renowned Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland. Described by the Financial Times as “this most remote and intense of international music events”, the festival will shortly welcome, once again, some of the very best musicians from around the world.

In their review of the 2015 festival, the Financial Times commented:

“The absence of an orchestra does not deter [Artistic Director Vladimir] Mendelssohn from programming symphonies and concerti; among this year’s highlights were organist Wolfgang Abendroth’s seven-part arrangement of Alban Berg’s violin concerto, all the more effective for its intimacy, with Daniel Rowland giving a lyrically intelligent account of the solo part; and a surreal but startlingly plausible version of Shostakovich’s 15th symphony for violin, cello, piano and three percussionists. “

The concert was recorded, and you can listen to Daniel’s performance of the Berg here:
