Finnish Tangos: Passion and Melancholy

Finland has not only adopted Argentinian tango; it has also made it its own. Developed in the 1930s, today Finnish tango is a flourishing musical genre in its own right. This surprising musical style is one of melancholy and passionate romance, without the thundering accents of Argentinian tango. Before conquering the world of opera, bass singer Matti Salminen made his name as a tango singer in Finnish dance halls. At BOZAR, the renowned singer returns to his first love, accompanied by the rich, full sound of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, which for this concert will be led by rising young conductor, Taavi Oramo.
