Cancelled: Young artists of the spring: Lore Amenabar Larrañaga

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.

The concert has been cancelled due to corona restrictions.

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.
