Sväng is celebrating Jean Sibelius anniversary

The master Finnish composer Jean Sibelius was born 150 years ago in 2015. Sväng is confident that during his silent years 1920-1922 Jean Sibelius had his harmonica and his cigar while walking in a forest of Ainola. Already in the turn of the century he has composed great pieces, like Impromptu which clearly calls for the melancholy and limpid sound of a tremolo tuned harmonica. Op. 22 number 4, in which Mr. Lemminkäinen returns from his endeavors and Op 11, The Karelia suite sounds also great with harmonica.

Sväng is bringing a comprehensive take of Sibelius music to you in 2015. We have been working hard on the arrangements and rehearsals so the it is time to show you something:

Here is early preview of lasts weeks studio work, enjoy.

Leaving for a rehearsal break

Thank you for the great conclusion of the season in Meidän Festivaali – Tuusula, Ocarina Festival – Bled, Auditori Pau Casals  and Festival Les Traversées Tatihou.
We really enjoyed your hospitality and great audience!

Sväng will now leave for a rehearsal break until the end of year.
A brand new project has been on works for several months now but plenty of work is still ahead for us.

Will keep you posted.
