Premiere of a new Finnish Accordion Concerto in Espoo - Finland

On March 7th, 2019 a new large scale Finnish work “Concerto da Camera” (by Kalle Välimaa, a well-known Finnish accordionist and composer) was performed for the first time by Finnish accordionist and conductor Jukka-Pekka Kuusela as a soloist in Suvela Chappel, Espoo. The orchestra part was played by the composer himself on piano.

“Concerto da Camera” consists of 7 movements and lasts about 30 minutes. The composition (also entitled “Memories from La Palma”) and the performance were well acclaimed by the public.

The concert which was entitled “Accordion Concertos on a Spring Evening” included works by U. Jutila, J. Webb, V. Salmanov, B. Przybylski and J.S. Bach which were performed by young accordionists from Espoo and Hyvinkää.
