Details / Lisätietoja
The contemporary guitar music festival Kitara Nova is celebrating its fifth year! The final concert of the festival is celebrating this event with a premiere of a brand new guitar concerto “Pisces-Mime” by Leevi Räsänen. The piece is performed by the guitarist Teuvo Taimioja with Helsinki Chamber Orchestra conducted by Elisar Riddelin.
Räsänen and Taimioja have worked together during all of their studies and Teuvo has premiered all of Leevi’s works for the guitar. They ended up by chance in a student exchange program together in Glasgow for several months. The idea for a concerto was born during this time on the highlands of Scotland and is the pinnacle of both their professional relationship and friendship.
In addition to the concerto the concert will also showcase talented young guitar students from different music schools.
