Brunch concert: “Blue autumn”
Aki Rissanen's trio, Mari Palo & Ville Rusanen
Sun 27.8. 12:00
Huvila treats its guests to an atmospheric afternoon with poetic tones and overflowing brunch tables. The music is provided by the Aki Rissanen trio, whose new arrangement of the Syksy (Autumn) song cycle, composed by Leevi Madetoja, with text by poet L. Onerva, combines jazz improvisation and classical music. The soloists are fabulous opera singers: soprano Mari Palo and baritone Ville Rusanen.
Madetoja’s last significant song cycle, Syksy combines rugged Finnish influences with a delicate and harmonic French expression. This year marks the 130th anniversary of Madetoja’s birth.
Aki Rissanen is one of the most acclaimed Finnish jazz pianists and composers of today. Rissanen’s Amorandom received the Emma Award for best jazz album in 2017. The brunch concert’s catering, inspired by the Mediterranean tapas culture, is provided by Juuri Tapahtumat.
Concert starts at 12. Doors: 11 am.
