World premiere of Karui at Uuden Musiikin Lokakuu Festival

Updated: Feb 5, 2019

Today, my first totally microtonal piece Karui (for quarter-tone clarinet and quarter tone accordion) will get its premiere at Uuden Musiikin Lokakuu Festival in Oulu, Finland. The premiere will be given by musicians of MikroEnsemble: Helmi Malmgren, quarter-tone clarinet and Veli Kujala, quarter-tone accordion. It’ll be a pleasure to also hear the other works in the concert of MikroEnsemble and spend some time with dear friends and colleagues.

My warmest thanks to clarinetist Lauri Sallinen and accordionist/composer Veli Kujala for commissioning this piece and to Sibelius Fund for financial support toward this commission.
