Violinist Pekka Kuusisto offers up his last instalment of Finnish folk song, filmed on a snowy afternoon...
Finnish Folk Music - Pekka Kuusisto Home Video - September 2017
For the first day of autumn, violinist Pekka Kuusisto shares another folk song video from his home in Finland. This sombre polska was written by Samuel Rinda-Nickola.
Pekka will be sending us videos every few weeks, as Finland descends into the darkness of winter, each featuring a traditional folk tune from Finland. This forms part of our digital offering for our involvement in Southbank Centre’s Nordic Matters festival, the Nordic Music Days festival (also at Southbank Centre) at the end of September 2017 and the Finland 100 centenary celebrations. The films will continue through the end of 2017.
