Chamber Concert II Musical Gallery

Jaakko Kuusisto violin
Elina Vähälä violin
Jonathan Roozeman cello

Bartók’s popular duos for two violins open an atmospheric concert, in which the audience will hear colourful pieces composed for strings. This concert culminates with Ravel’s sonata for violin and cello, which masterfully exploits the entire range of colors achieved by these two instruments.

In addition to the concert, the audience has an opportunity to enjoy painter Irmeli Hulkko’s exhibition, which is visiting Galleria Harmaja during March 2nd – 25th, 2018.

Irmeli Hulkko’s Offbeat series paintings, in a way, portray crystallization of existence or time prisms that aim for translucency and momentariness; movement in and out. By changing the spatial experience, a view opens up to a space like landscape where light and darkness, inside and outside, constantly change places.

Structurality; geometric shapes and graphic lines are just a means to bringing invisible into the view.

The world seems to be whole, even for a moment, albeit somewhat obscure and unstable.

Irmeli Hulkko was born in 1963 in Pelkosenniemi, Finland, and currently lives and works in Helsinki.
