Jyväskylä Sinfonia’s spring term will start on the 4th of January with a performance of Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème. The premiere will be heard on the last day of the present year, and the last performance in the beginning of February 2020. This great masterpiece will be performed altogether ten times after the premiere. The soloists of the main roles are Anamarija Knego/Marjukka Tepponen, Aljaž Farasin, Kevin Greenlaw and Kaisa Ranta.
Ville Matvejeff, the chief conductor of Jyväskylä Sinfonia, conducts the opening season concert of the spring term on the 15th of January in Taulumäki church, where the focus is on a very exceptional solo instrument in the orchestra – organ. Organist Susanne Kujala will play as the soloist of the concert, and the program includes, for example, Organ Concerto composed by Francis Poulenc among other pieces.
The spring term brings several talented soloists and conductors to the stage with Jyväskylä Sinfonia; violinists Janne Nisonen and Vilmos Szabadi, violist Lilli Maijala, cellist Andreas Brantelid, bassoonist Bence Bogányi and pianists Olli Mustonen and Heini Kärkkäinen will be seen in the upcoming concerts.
Along with Ville Matvejeff, in the spring the orchestra will also be conducted by Atso Almila, Jukka Myllys, Ari Rasilainen and the rising star Emilia Hoving, who is known, for instance, from The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Jyväskylä Sinfonia will also have an ensemble guest, string quartet Meta4, on the 18th of March.
There will be some bigger productions coming as well; in the beginning of March Jyväskylä Sinfonia will accompany the finalists of the famous Ilmari Hannikainen Competition, which combines piano and chamber music this year. About one month later, before the Easter, the orchestra plays Triduum Paschale, the Easter oratorio composed by Pekka Kostiainen from Jyväskylä. Talented Finnish vocal soloists and local Musica choir will be featuring Jyväskylä Sinfonia in the oratorio. The brand-new recording of the oratorio will be published at the same week, too.
The program of orchestra’s spring term includes also crossover concerts. On the Valentine’s day Jyväskylä Sinfonia will play a concert filled with music by the band called Miljoonasade. Over 30 years ago Miljoonasade was founded in Jyväskylä. On the May Day eve orchestra will take part in the traditional Glamour & Glam concert, and on the 8th and 9th of May Satu Sopanen and Tuttiorkesteri will entertain young audience with Jyväskylä Sinfonia. Those concerts will be the last ones of the orchestra’s spring term and they will be held in the beautiful main building of Jyväskylä University.
In addition to the season concerts, Jyväskylä Sinfonia organizes day concerts, chamber music concerts, open general rehearsals and artist meetings before concerts. Orchestra visits also in Pieksämäki and in Viitasaari during the spring time.
