Virtuoso soloists to shine at Jyväskylä this spring season 

Jyväskylä Symphony Orchestra’s spring programme will treat audiences to a wide range of classical music including Viennese and Romantic delights as well as Finnish favourites by Erkki Melartin and Pekka Kostiainen. Chief Conductor Ville Matvejeff will be joined by Atso Almila and Ari Rasilainen, familiar to Jyväskylä audiences through their previous appearances in the city. Also taking the reins will be promising newcomer Emilia Hoving who has previously worked with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, as well as conductor and pianist Olli Mustonen. 

The spring concert season will also see a fantastic line up of talented soloists take to the stage in Jyväskylä. At the mega event of the season, Andreas Brantelid, winner of the 2006 Paulo Cello Competition will be performing his interpretation of Elgar’s much loved and hugely popular cello concerto. In February, Lilli Majala will give a recital of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante alongside conductor and violinist Janne Nisonen. They will be followed by Bence Bogányi, famous for his hypnotic way with the bassoon, Hungarian violinist Vilmos Szabadi, well-known to Finnish audiences, pianist Heini Kärkkäinen as well as string quartet Meta4.  

The recently re-launched Ilmari Hannikainen piano chamber music competition is set to take place in Jyväskylä in February and March. Jyväskylä Symphony Orchestra will accompany the competitors during the two-day final, with piano trios, violin and piano duos or piano duos, performing as four hands or on two pianos, eligible to compete.  
 
Audiences are in for a special treat at Easter, as Triduum Paschale, Pekka Kostiainen’s Easter Oratorio is performed live on stage. A stunning new album recording of the oratorio, featuring the Musica choir and the soloists appearing live on stage, will be launched on the day. 

 

30 years of Miljoonasade and Tuttiorkesteri

It would not be an exaggeration to call Miljoonasade, the band that first came together in Jyväskylä more than three decades ago, Finland’s ultimate rock and roll royalty. A new exhibition charting the band’s journey to musical success opened at the Museum of Central Finland in December, and the band will be following this up with a concert hall tour this spring.  On Valentine’s Day, Miljoonasade will be treating audiences at Jyväskylä’s Paviljonki to a string of their greatest hits, powerfully yet characterfully arranged for a symphony orchestra. 

The spring season will culminate in a Mother’s Day concert for the whole family. Satu Sopanen and the Tuttiorkesteri orchestra have been inspiring Finnish children to sing, rhyme and play for the past 30 years. The anniversary concerts will see the artists playing some of their best-known songs, and they will also be taking requests from their young listeners.  

Our traditional day-time concerts will take place on 22 January and 6 May at 12:00. These concerts run for approximately one hour and contain selected pieces from the evening concert programme.  While you’re visiting, you can also enjoy some delicious soup for lunch or treat yourself to a coffee at the concert hall café.
