Introduction

Whether the programme features Bach, Liget or even the music to a Buster Keaton silent film, one can always expect a unique performance by Israeli pianist Matan Porat. In this concert Porat presents his interpretation of a model Romantic piano concerto. The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra will also premiere a new composition by Veli-Matti Puumala that was commissioned for the orchestra to mark the Finland 100 centenary year. The composition explores the experience of art as the interplay of space and sound.
