“This is also part of Finland, whether we want it or not,” says the YL Male Voice Choir in its unusual and unique concert. At first glance, classical composer Leevi Madetoja and the iconic Finnish band Leevi and the Leavings have nothing but their name in common. They represent very different styles and musical periods. Still, both embody something of the deepest core of Finnishness.
The concert in Olavinlinna by Finland’s most famous male voice choir, the YL Male Voice Choir, brings two quintessentially Finnish musical artists together in a completely new way. It will be an evening when overwhelming happiness meets the depths of despair. The choir sings about feeling nostalgia for youth, the bliss of falling in love and the agony of heartbreak, painting a poetic picture of the Finnish national landscape with rough, realistic edges.
The programme, detailed below, features classical pieces by the composer, Leevi Madetoja, and songs written by the lead singer of Leevi and the Leavings, one of the most famous Finnish bands of all time.
