Long-awaited spring

Spring is here! I suddenly find myself having more and more free time. That is most welcome after rather busy spring!

April was so far the busiest month of the year. We had quite many shows with Fabulous Bäckström Brothers, including a live internet show with YLE and a brand new concert programme with orchestra that took place in Pori 1st of May with Pori Sinfonietta and conductor Janne Nisonen. I made two new arrangements for piano and orchestra for that concert and had a lot of fun playing them.

I also had the opportunity of spending a week in London where I worked a bit with new arrangements but also had a chance to enjoy the city. The cultural highlight of the week was Puccini’s Madame Butterfly at Royal Opera House.
