Young Oulu musicians are at the heart of the final concert in the chamber series. This concert will be opened by Niilo Korsulainen’s string quintet, which earned an award at the Uuno Klami Composing Competition for Children and Youth in November 2017. In Janáček’s sonata, the masterful Elina Vähälä appears with Oulunsalo-born Hannu Alasaarela, who enjoyed success in last year’s Maj Lind Piano Competition. The concert concludes with Dvořák’s popular Serenade, in a version for string quartet and wind quintet.
