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 will play 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 these are the dates of my solo concerts during spring 2017; the concerts take place on Wednesday mornings and they start at 10.15am.

On August 24th it’s the traditional Helsinki Festival’s ‘Night of the Arts – Taiteiden yö’.
On that evening I will play two sets of improvisations starting at 9pm and 10pm respectively.

Welcome to the magical Temppeliaukio Church!
