Anu Komsi | soprano
Marzi Nyman | organ

The cooperation of Anu Komsi and Marzi Nyman started in 2008, and Duke Ellington’s ’Sacred Concerts’, a multiple-piece spiritual work became the core of their wide repertoire. Ellington himself instructed that each performance can be different, regardless of the ensemble used, and this duo has truly followed this instruction. Several types of organs have been used in performances of this work, both in ancient and modern churches. The rest of the concert is a mix of improvisation, well-known opera arias, and hymn arrangements, music from composers such as Jean Sibelius, Giacomo Puccini, Pekka Pohjola and Elliott Carter. The performers may surprise both the audience and themselves.
