Bio

I am from Mikkeli.

I have played with the orchestra since 1995.

I like playing 19th and 20th century Russian music in particular.

It’s very hard to describe the emotional states and charges of playing and concerts. I feel that as a musician I am privileged to get so much out of my work emotionally. Sometimes I wonder what kind of “kicks” so-called ordinary people can get from their jobs.

For me the highlight of the spring 2016 season will be Epiphany and the visit by John Malkovich (6 January).
