At the opening concert of the PianoEspoo festival, new piano concertos by Jaakko Kuusisto and Lauri Kilpiö demonstrate two different approaches to contemporary concerto writing. Aarre Merikanto’s Piano Concerto no. 3, by contrast, is a pure example of the composer’s late Neo-Classical period.

In collaboration with PianoEspoo
