Hooked On the Piano Tour 09, the Savonlinna Hall Thursday, 23th of July 2009

How does one feel coming back to the hot and sunny day after having spent an hour in the cool shade of the Savonlinna Hall immersed in other worlds, listening to piano music?

LIKE RE-AWAKENED – a shame that so many people did not experience it!

PIANIST Pauli Kari’s concert tour began at Savonlinna with a series of three concerts. The programme consisted of the musician’s personal favourites, works which are usually performed as the last number at concerts; that is to say, the works which hit the jackpot. And there was no doubt of the performer having hit the jackpot! In the hands of the pianist who has won international acclaim, the melodies of e.g. Balakirev, Liszt and Chopin ran like water, as well as his own improvisation, inspired by the atmosphere of Barcelona.

The pianist let us in on his secret: if one enjoys playing the pieces, the joy also reaches the public. ”
