More information and tickets to the concert

“1+1 is a concert about how all things have two sides, about balancing at the intersection of two paths. And I am not there alone.”

Guitarist J-P Piirainen, a seasoned solo performer, explores the extension of the solo instrument aesthetic to a variety of duos in his master’s recital. How to combine a solo idiom firmly rooted in folk music with modern guitar music and various combinations of instruments? The works on the programme form a bridge between guitar music and folk music and also explore the territory between the two genres.
