This year’s concert at the Music in the Cathedral festival features works by Baroque masters. Appropriately for an Olympic year, the programme includes the brisk overture to Vivaldi’s opera L’Olimpiade. Members of the TPO take the stage as soloists to perform some of the finest string concertos of the 17th and 18th centuries in the magnificent setting of Turku Cathedral.
The duration of the concert is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
