Online concert: Malla Vivolin – Female Nude

In her third doctoral concert, Malla Vivolin examines the artistic identity of a flautist through the musician’s vocals and spoken word.

Malla stands in front of the camera with her instrument. Her back is faced to the camera.
Lea Antola

Concert will be streamed live on Sibelius Academys Youtube channel.

What does an artist’s performance look like when we can’t hide behind the instrument? The corporeal and ethereal are both present in this concert, whose programme includes solo pieces by Ford, Saariaho and Takemitsu as well as chamber music by Crumb, Ravel and Roussel.
