Nordic Music Days

28 Sep 2017 - 1 Oct 2017

Nordic Music Days celebrates new Nordic music and is the oldest ongoing collaboration among the Nordic countries. The festival, founded in 1888, has its origins in existing musical partnerships.

This year's festival showcases pioneering contemporary music performances and workshops by Nordic composers performed by leading ensembles and soloists from Britain, alongside a programme of fun family events and workshops.

Performances include Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra performing Sibelius, Floral Night Episode and Late Night Nordic Sounds.

The Nordic Music Days programme is free, with the exception of the Philharmonia Orchestra - Esa-Pekka Salonen: Sibelius concert on Thursday 28 September.
