Solo

I’ve performed solo piano improvisation concerts at the Temppeliaukio Church in Helsinki on an almost weekly basis since 2001.
In summer 2017 I played there for the 400th time, can you believe it?

It’s such a fantastic place!
The church has a wonderful acoustic, it is an architectonical beauty (talking about Wow-architecture) and the Steinway grand piano they have is the best piano I’ve had the honor to play on, ever.
And I’ve played on quite a few to be sure.

In March 2015 I spent two evenings in the church recording improvisations based on hymns of the Finnish church songbook. The CD was released on Midsummer Day, June 20th, 2015.
Here is a short video from the recording session:

On my publisher’s page (SatnaMusic) you can listen to a track of the new album called ‘Ilta on tullut, Luojani / Dusk has fallen, my Lord

Here are the dates of my solo concerts for spring 2018; the concerts usually take place on Wednesday mornings (sometimes Tuesday, due to other church reservations) starting at 10.15am.

During spring 2018 I will also perform in a new series of chamber concerts called ‘Two Moons’, on Fridays at 3pm.
In these concerts I will perform as a Duo with some of Finland’s most renowned instrumentalists.
I will update the list below when all my Duo partners have confirmed.
