A maximum of 50 people are admitted to concerts held at the R Building. Seats will be filled in order of arrival. The covid-19 pass is not used.

We will comply with the Agency’s guidelines, and the concerts will be arranged live in a safe manner as soon as possible.

You can watch a free live stream of the concert on Youtube, 3 February, 19–19:50.

As the Sibelius Academy welcomes those who are at the infancy of their musical journey, it must also bid farewell to those who will continue theirs in a professional capacity. Two Finnish pieces performed on the classical accordion will precede three world premières performed on a self-designed quarter-tone accordion, as such, representing my growth as an artist, as well as Larrañaga’s transition towards microtonality; towards the blue buttons.
