This concert will be devoted to compositions by the participants of the Creative Dialogue workshop, along with works by Kaija Saariaho performed by instrumentalist taking part in the workshop.
The concert is part of the Creative Dialogue workshop hosted by the Sibelius Academy and masterminded by Anssi Karttunen, Magnus Lindberg and Kaija Saariaho. The workshop aims to encourage young performers and composers to engage in creative dialogue and to inspire each other and the musical community in general. Despite studying at the same institutions, performers and composers often have little opportunity to learn from one another.
Six Creative Dialogue workshops have so far been held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the seventh is scheduled for January-February 2015 in Finland – at Kallio-Kuninkala in Järvenpää. This Finnish workshop will be led by Kaija Saariaho, Anssi Karttunen, and pianist Tuija Hakkila. Participants have been invited from top European and US conservatories.
OBS. There are no reservations for the free concerts! Please arrive in good time to ensure a place!
