Jukka-Pekka Saraste & Kaisa Kortelainen

Watch and listen LIVE at Yle Areena

Lotta Wennäkoski starts with an idea: In her Flute Concerto Soie she was inspired by images of fabrics, of see-through voile, of thick linen and silk. Such images could well be said to apply to her music in general. Recognisable traits are the timbre of a sound, airiness, clarity – and silence. The FRSO’s own flautist Kaisa Kortelainen is one of the best of her generation. Soie was an FRSO commission in 2009.

Due to COVID-19 measures audiences will not be permitted to attend concerts by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra in the Helsinki Music Centre’s Concert Hall between January 7-31. The concert will be shown on Yle Areena.
