The Tempest Songbook

Many of Shakespeare’s works have inspired composers through the centuries, and The
Tempest is no exception. Attributed to Henry Purcell (though the music may in fact have
been composed by John Blow) is a suite of music for that very play. In that same play, Kaija
Saariaho discovered a number of unique birthday greetings, and without any intention
of writing a largescale work, set first one to music, then another, and another, and so on.
Today these two series will meet each other right here in Kuhmo!
