The Baltic Sea Philharmonic conducted by Kristjan Järvi plays ‘Midnight Sun’

Under the baton of Founding Conductor and Music Director Kristjan Järvi, the Baltic Sea Philharmonic played the entire 100-minute ‘Midnight Sun’ programme of music by Grieg and Stravinsky from memory. Budapest-born pianist József Balog joined the orchestra as soloist in Grieg’s Piano Concerto. The concert also includes another of Grieg’s most celebrated works – the Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 – and Stravinsky’s 1945 orchestral version of The Firebird, a piece which the Baltic Sea Philharmonic became the first orchestra in the world to perform completely from memory.

Genre: Classical Music
Duration: 105′
Format: HD

Can be paired with the documentary Nordic Pulse which follows Kristjan Järvi and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic on three European tours as they fulfill their destiny to become the first orchestra in history to perform Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite by memory and push the boundaries of what it means to be an orchestra.
