Pitkänsillankatu 16

Accordion has had a special place in the Finnish soul ever since we gained independence. It has served as a form of self-expression for Finnish emigrants and Mannerheim used it during wartime to unite the people – and its diversity of sound is unique to our land. It is our national instrument and over the years has remained an important and meaningful instrument even in classical and artistic music circles. And of course it has also played an important role in the dance orchestra.

What has 100 years in Finland meant for the accordion? And what has the accordion meant for Finland? Is the accordion part of our cultural identity in the same way as Lönnrot, Snellman, Sibeliu and Väinö? Or is it meaningless, something that solely gets in the way of ”higher” music?

Presenters will include composer Kalevi Aho, M.Sc. Marko Tikka, professor Matti Rantanen and Minna Sirnö, director of the center for the promotion of the arts.

All are welcome to come, question and comment!

Seminar leader is master of music Kimmo Mattila.

Free admission.
