Genre: Chamber music

Livestream: Flute and Piano

Atmospheric music inspired by nature.

The concert can been seen at Konserthuset Play

***

Anna Riikonen plays the flute for the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and also has principal responsibility for the piccolo. Together with pianist Magnus Sköld, she will present an exquisite programme of classical flute music by Schubert and Debussy, as well as several newer pieces that truly take advantage of the incredible register of the flute.

Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski has said that it is important to her for music to have “space and clarity.” She has established herself as one of Finland’s most acclaimed composers. At this concert we will hear her atmospherically inspiring and tonally innovative Ilmakehästä (From Atmosphere).

Between Andrea Tarrodi’s flowing Crystallites, inspired by falling snow crystals, and Victoria Borisova-Ollas’ impressionistic and dense Secret Beauty of Waters, both of which are piano pieces, Anna Riikonen will play Tweet for solo piccolo. Inspired by the song of the robin, which floated in through composer Daniel Dorff’s open window, this is a masterful and beautiful piece in the very highest register.
