Open-minded and exploring, Helvi Leiviskä followed her vocation as a composer throughout her life and was decorated with the Pro Finlandia medal for her merits. She is represented here with her Piano Trio. Composer-in-residence Sebastian Fagerlund’s Piano Trio pairs well with Leiviskä’s work, inviting comparisons between these two Finnish piano trios written nearly a century apart. The afternoon concludes with a Romantic gem by Mahler.
The length of the concert is about 1 hour. No intermission.
