Anu Komsi | soprano
Marzi Nyman | organ

The cooperation of the Anu Komsi and Marzi Nyman duo started in 2008, and Duke Ellington’s ’Sacred Concerts’, a multiple-piece spiritual work, in which solo parts are written for a high soprano, became the core of their wide programme. Ellington himself instructed in the performance instructions that each performance can be different, independent of a performing assembly, and the duo has truly followed this instruction. This work has been performed with many types of organs both in medieval 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.
