Inner Circle

The RSPO Orchestra Academy in the world premiere of a new piece by Finnish composer Aino Tenkanen. The music was especially written for this ensemble, which was also part of the work process.

Young Finnish composer Aino Tenkanen has composed a piece especially for the Orchestra Academy. Tenkanen studied at the Sibelius Academy and emphasises artistic collaboration. Her music has been performed by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Avanti! ensemble and the TEMA Quartet.

She has used choreography in the new piece, Inner Circle, which was composed especially for the young musicians of the Orchestra Academy. A key element of the project was the process between composer and ensemble, in which parts of the piece were tested throughout the course of the work.

The RSPO Orchestra Academy is a higher academic special programme for young musicians, and is associated with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. The supervisors and instructors are primarily section leaders from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. The programme includes individual instrument instruction, orchestral performance, and chamber music performance.
