Tuesday, November 21, 2015 at 8 pm

Finnish accordionist Matti Pulkki brings his hour-long solo recital to Toronto. The concert program consists of contemporary solo pieces from around the world. The title of the concert is derived from a new large-scale composition by George Katehis commissioned by the American Accordionists’ Association. This performance at Gallery 345 will be the Canadian premiere of the piece. The rest of the program features music from composers such as Magnus Lindberg, Jesús Torres, Keiko Harada and Sampo Haapamäki.

Keiko Harada: BONE+

Sampo Haapamäki: Power

Matti Pulkki (b. 1991) is a Helsinki based classical accordionist. Pulkki performs as a soloist and with different chamber groups. Recently he has been focusing on collaborating with composers on renewing the soundscape of the instrument through experimenting. Though Pulkki concentrates mainly on original music written for accordion, he also arranges, transcribes, and performs music from a wide range of styles and eras. Pulkki recently completed his Master's degree at the Sibelius Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki as a student of professor Matti Rantanen. From 2014 to 2015, he studied at the University of Toronto with professor Joseph Macerollo.
