Kortekangas' 'Ende und Beginn' world premiere with Söderlund, Tervamäki et al from Uusikaupunki
Olli Kortekangas' 'Ende und Beginn' is an opera to a libretto by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Paul Gerhardt and the composer. One of the layers of the opera provides an easily identifiable path to our pandemic behavior and emotions: an alternation of disbelief and chaos, hopeful and hopeless waiting, contentment, and submission. We’re still waiting for the end, “Ende,” which allows for something new to begin with, “Beginn”. World premiere.
Performers: Nicholas Söderlund, bass, Minna Tervamäki, speech and dance, Tuulia Ylönen, clarinet, Marko Ylönen, cello, Kari Vuola, organ, and Jukka Nykänen, piano and music direction.
Recorded 11 August.
New church, Uusikaupunki
