The composers in this concert are all symbolists whose music leads to crazy illusions and a spirit world. The music of Ravel and Klami intoxicates with its impact and glittering instrumentation, while Raitio and Skryabin hypnotise with their revolving harmonies and acid colours. Tonight’s soloist is Neo-symbolist composer-pianist Johannes Piirto.
