This exciting week features electroacoustic concert, children and student concerts, guitar recital and two chamber music concerts. Our focus composer is young Outi Tarkiainen, whose works combine contemporary music and jazz music in a very personal manner. Her music has already been played by leading Finnish orchestras as well as jazz giants such as Dave Liebman and Randy Brecker. Our main guest artists are dazzling guitarist Petri Kumela and the fabulous Uusinta Chamber Ensemble. “Just how accomplished and imaginative the Uusinta players are became evident in the evening’s first offering” described The New York Times in 2014 of Uusinta at the Mata Festival, where they performed “with ample gravity and dignity” and “with playful ease”.

Our new CD Hyperorganism has received very enthusiastic feedback. The largest Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat wrote: "In his compositions Kujala ventures joyfully in the whole universe... Frenetic groove, ethnic rhythms and uninhibited imagination carry away involuntarily." Music from the disc has already been played in several programs of the Radio 1 of the Finnish Broadcasting Company and their reviewer wrote: "The entirety is convincing, newest and most interesting music of our time... The music of Veli Kujala resonates in a startlingly fresh and uncompromisingly original way." The latest review was just a few days ago in the largest Swedish language newspaper of Finland, Hufvudstadsbladet: "Kujala moves effortlessly and inventively through different styles, ages and aesthetics... The music of Veli Kujala brings together universum, human, present and eternal perspective."
