At the Whitsun Festival we bridge the gap between Europe and Hollywood. Long ridiculed, film music is now an independent branch of musical modernism. It focuses less on avant-garde and more on applicability, and incidentally familiarises the audience with dissonances and other modernisms. "Cinema" is something like the sun at Whitsun, but there are other planets: Look forward to jazz, chamber music, British and Russian symphonies. Instead of outer space, the festival begins in the inner space of the soul - with a song recital by Camilla Nylund and Helmut Deutsch.
