Tundo! - Finnish Premiere by Kuopio Symphony

What an incredible week comes to an end! This week my piece "Tundo!" got its Finnish premiere December 5th and I made me debut with Kuopion kaupunginorkesteri conducted by the marvellous Jaakko Kuusisto! It was also the first time I visited Kuopio, which immediately became one of my favourite cities in Finland. Great concert hall, great and also friendly orchestra, wonderful atmosphere both at work and in town. I got to live on an address named after one of my idols, Minna Canth street, and after I got home my piece as well as the concert got a great review (of which you only can see a small part in the pic) in Savon Sanomat by Jussi Mattila. This was my last concert in Finland this season, quite an ending indeed!
