Introduction

Conductor André de Ridder is the founder of the s t a r g a z e musical collective and a curious and innovative concert curator. The artistic director of the Musica nova Helsinki-festival brings works that require electricity and video screens. Anna Meredith's piece sheds light on the moments between yesterday and tomorrow. Composer Simon-STeen Andersen dropped a grand piano from an eight metres height onto a concrete floor, recorded and filmed this, and used it as the big bang and material for his piano concerto. 

Live broadcast at Yle radio 1, Yle Areena & HKO Screen mobile app.
