Helsinki: Music, Myth and Art Nouveau
Speaker: Brian Healey
Venue: Cultural Centre and at home (see below)
Date: 14th February at 18:00 (Spanish time)
Sponsor: Solpanel Experten
Visitors to Helsinki are often surprised by its architecture, populated by unusual creatures and mythical characters from Finland's national epic, the Kalevala. This also inspired Jean Sibelius to compose some of his finest music, and artists such as Akseli Gallen-Kallela to paint some remarkable works, all coming together in Finland's quest for nationhood and turning its capital city into a jewel of art nouveau, but with a distinctly Finnish flavour.
