String trio ZPR was founded by Cecilia Zilliacus, violin; Johanna Persson, viola; and Kati Raitinen, cello. Monday at Last is a concert subscription in which ZPR, now for the twelfth year in a row, invites guest musicians to explore new and old music together, often in close contact with the audience. This time Johanna Persson is replaced by Riikka Repo.
Perhaps the main attraction of this concert: the first performance of a Kalevi Aho’s brand new piece for ackordeon and string trio, with the Finnish ackordeonist Janne Rättyä – one of the leading musicians on his instrument in the classical world. Rättyä’s presence is also the reason for the fact that many of the pieces in the programme are played in adaptations for his instrument.
We hear two works by the French composer Philippe Hersant, one of which is an hommage to his compatriot Henri Dutilleux (1916–2013), and the Dutilleux piece is in turn an hommage to Bach. The concert opens with music by Igor Stravinsky and Kaija Saariaho.
