Oh wow, small world, I just came home from this concert (unfortunately only hear the 2nd half) after spending time afterwards in a pub together with the pianist in question, who is a friend of mine, and other friends. It'll be up on the webpage again later on, I'll post a link once it's up.

Yeah, I'm Finnish.

To be honest he's not my favorite composer at all...never listen to his orchestral works voluntarily...

I wish I could have been there...The listening experience was pretty much ruined by the feed freezing all the time :(

But I'll listen again when the video is up, some new music for me as well.
