La Francophonie or the French-speaking world is once again in focus in March 2017! One of the highlights of the month is a concert organized in the famous Temppeliaukio church (Lutherinkatu 3) on March 16th at 7pm. French cellist Henri Alécian and pianist Thomas Puissochet take us on a musical tour from the classical-romantic airs of Brahms and Saint-Saëns to Debussy’s impressionism, and first steps towards 20th century modernism.

The concert is free of charge, but reservation is highly recommended. Please reserve your place here.
