Concerts are cancelled from audience until 10.1.2021 due to restrictions related to the corona situation.

In this concert, as always, we present music from our past. This time the strange and wonderful music of Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Violin and Percussion Orchestra will be heard with Maestro John Storgårds performing the violin solo. Sibelius Academy conducting student I-Han Fu will conduct the group.

Music from a more modern past brings Iannis Xenakis’s Okho to the stage for an exciting version of the masterpiece for 3 percussionists.

Gavin Bryars’ One Last Song Then Joe Can Sing brings on stage for the first time the newly formed percussion group from the Sibelius Academy, Echo Percussion.
To start the the concert we have Bill Cahn’s Changes. Cahn was a founding member of the Nexus percussion group, and his music is always exciting and full of surprises.
