Monday 14 February 2022 19.00Ends approximately 21.00
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.
The unparalleled Finnish electric bass virtuoso and composer Lauri Porra moves unencumbered between classical music and concerts with the power metal band Stratovarius, of which he is a member. His music has been performed by many of the major Nordic orchestras and his latest album, Entropia from 2018, is a collaboration with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra.
Now we get to hear his new project Cabins & Hideouts, in which he combines string instruments in an utterly unique blend. In Bach Reimagined, we hear new versions of Bach’s music for electric bass and cello.
In collaboration with ZPR.
