Maria Puusaari – Road Movies

Maria Puusaari’s 3rd postgraduate concert.

You can watch a free live stream of the concert on Youtube, 10 November, 19–21.

After the Second World War, musical development was characterised by an aesthetic dispute between Arnold Schönberg and Igor Stravinsky. Maria Puusaari’s postgraduate concert features new romantics, minimalists and new systems of musical composition that emerged in the musical footsteps of Stravinsky’s neoclassism.
