Sibelius in Korpo XV

22-24.7.2016

The Sibelius in Korpo festival is held in the small island village here Sibelius spent his summer holidays in 1886 and 1887. This gem of festivals features concerts in the village's 13th-century stone church and at Korpo Mansion, designed by the famous italian architect Charles Bassi (1804), where Sibelius himself made music with his family and friends in 1886-1887. During his stay in Korpo Sibelius composed some of his most important works of his youth, 'The Korpo Trio' and 'The Hafträsk Trio'.
