Kuhmo Chamber Music Festivals at Hotel Kalevala

Hotel Kalevala - Magic and Traditions

Kuhmo Chamber Music will run for two weeks, from July 9 to 22.


In 2017 the general focus will be on the connecting thread between various genres and periods. Artistic Director Vladimir Mendelssohn sums it up nicely in the word ‘zap’, the French slang verb for channel surfing.

Channel surfing is open to interpretation. Instead of recitative in oratorio, Mendelssohn is planning to use a rap style;
in one concert we will be in New York, which never sleeps, and in another we will pay a visit to a Russian tea room.
Kuhmo audiences are no strangers to seamless changes in style. Nevertheless, the main focus will continue to be on traditional chamber music.

Accommodation in lakeside Hotel Kalevala, in the region of great tradition and folklore, 3 km from the Kuhmo Centre. This is a place where Finland’s great epic Kalevala still survives, indeed a place of true ‘Finnishness’. Hotel is situated in a peaceful area, where you can enjoy real hospitality of the local people and the great Chamber Music Spirit of Kuhmo.
