Spring 2017 Playing seven different concerti within some two months! Some new ones (Kokkonen, Vieuxtemps, Kabalevsky, Beethoven Triple) and some played before: Dvorak, Brahms Double, Shostakovich. Very much looking forward to playing Dvorak with the Tokyo New City Orchestra and doing the Beethoven Triple with my brother and sister. As artist in residence with the Lahti Orchestra there will be Vieuxtemps and Shostakovich concerti with conductors Osmo Vänskä and Okko Kamu but also three chamber music programmes with great pieces by Schubert, Brahms, Shostakovich and Messiaen but also crossover with bass guitar! More chamber music at the Beijing Spring Festival, with the Jussen brothers in the Netherlands and with friends in Germany. At the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Finland’s 100 year Anniversary will be commemorated in a recital with my brother. Shostakovich concerto at the Tammisaari Festival with Jukka-Pekka Saraste. In August playing ‘Mania’ in Helsinki, Stockholm and New York with the composer, Esa-Pekka Salonen, conducting.
