“This year’s theme, Man and Nature, is all about nature and romance in music, yet very topical with sustainability and environmental impact,” says Annika Nordkvist, producer of Dalasinfoniettan and Vinterfest. Kicking off the festival on Thursday 15 February in Mora Church is Concerto for Birds and Orchestra, presenting a bewildering range of musical methods, styles and forms. This year’s programme contains plenty of orchestral music and Dalasinfoniettan, the official orchestra of Dalarna, will get to perform every day. In addition, audiences can enjoy international superstars such as Rosanne Philippens, Ville Matvejeff, Andreas Brantelid and Juho Pohjonen, with exciting appearances from young and talented musicians including Guro Kleven Hagen on violin and Eivind Holtsmark Ringstad on viola.
