An evening with a top violinist and her friends

This is your chance to listen to one of the most interesting violinists of the moment plays an intimate concert with her group of top musician friends. Sounds too good to be true? Nope. The Latvian violinist Baiba Skride has put together a quintet that comes to Finland from Schubertiade, one of Central Europe’s largest chamber orchestra festivals. Baiba Skride & Friends will play Schubert and Lachner – and express the joy of playing together with your friends.

‘When Baiba Skride is on stage, one can always count on a good symbiosis of quality and intensity. Baiba is a top artist of wide programmes, who is always equally familiar with the material and well prepared, regardless of whether it is a standard piece or a rarity. This concert has both: Schubert’s String Quintet has been called one of the finest pieces of chamber music of all time, and Franz Lachner’s quintet composition is very rarely played. I fully recommend this!’ –John Storgårds, conductor and violin artist
