Musica nova Helsinki’s Artistic Director Anssi Karttunen brings his internationally-acclaimed Zebra Trio to Finland. The other members of the Zebra Trio are Austrian Ernst Kovacic (violin) and Canadian Steven Dann (viola). The concert is part of the Klang series focusing on music composed in the 21st century.
The concert will introduce the third composer-in-residence Fred Lerdahl with a world premiere of his Give and Take for violin and cello. Magnus Lindberg’s Acequia Madre for viola and piano is played by Steven Dann and the composer himself. The Zebra Trio will also perform Miroslav Srnka’s and Rolf Wallin’s string trios. All works in the concert are composed for these performers.
