Sähkökitarakvartetti (c) Juho Liukkonen

The electric guitar is a uniting factor between contemporary music, rock and jazz – often as a symbol of freedom and anarchy. The electric guitar quartet made up of guitarists Juhani Grönroos, Lauri Hyvärinen, Jukka Kääriäinen and Sigurður Rögnvaldsson represent different backgrounds, aesthetics and approaches to their instrument. When playing together, they focus on the breaking down of imaginary boundaries in relation to sound art and embarking on an open-minded search for new tones and means of expression.

 The concert will also feature the premiere of a new piece by Sami Klemola, as well as pieces by Bryce Dessner, Aart Strootman and John Zorn.
