The Ristiveto Festival at Ateneum Art Museum on 11-13 October will present classic works of Late Romanticism and Early Modernism in a fresh way and with old instruments. Grand pianos from the early 20th century and string instruments strung with gut will transport listeners closer to the original and fascinating soundscape of the artwork. The concerts will be held in the exhibition halls, and the themes will be connected to the new exhibition opening on the same weekend, “On the Shores of the Lake”, which presents the Tuusula artist community. The festival will feature top Finnish and international artists, whose repertoire will include chamber music by Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, Webern and Dvorák.
The artistic directors of Ristiveto Festival are pianist Emil Holmström, violinist Eriikka Maalismaa and cellist Markus Hohti.
