Ismo Alanko

Oulu Symphony Orchestra
Jaakko Kuusisto | conductor

The charismatic musician Ismo Alanko entered the Finnish music life with a bang as the lead vocalist of Hassisen Kone in 1980. During the nearly-40-year period since that, Alanko has moved along a diverse career as an artist who has maintained a curious attitude and been forever renewing himself. Hassisen Kone changed to the legendary laboratory of collective music creation with the Sielun Veljet band, and at the arrival of the 1990s, to Alanko’s successful solo career. Ismo Alanko Säätiö stretched from the typical rock hardness even to some ethno tones, and Ismo Alanko Teholla after that moved the focus to ethno music completely. This concert offers both a full serving throughout Alanko’s career and also completely new material composed for a symphony orchestra last year. The arrangement of this versatile concert is handled by a group of Finland’s front-row composers and arrangers.
