This concert depicts Lore Amenabar Larrañaga’s journey as an eighteen-year-old student at the University of the Arts Helsinki to a present day PhD candidate at the Royal Academy of Music London.
Two Finnish pieces performed on the classical accordion will precede three world premières performed on a self-designed quarter-tone accordion, as such, representing Larrañaga’s growth as an artist, as well as her transition towards microtonality; towards the blue buttons.
