Painting ‘an extraordinary range of colours’ at his 2001 New York debut, celebrated Finnish pianist Paavali Jumppanen is as familiar with lush orchestral backdrops as he is with intimate recitals. Compellingly describing his repertoire as ‘piano literature’, Jumppanen brings an innate understanding of fresh festival-style discovery to his solo work.

Journey with our guest as he honours his heritage with the sublime lyricism of Sibelius. Accompany his exploration of French master Debussy's oeuvre through twelve evocative gems – including the aptly named Terrace of Moonlit Audiences – sure to capture the Twilight Notes mood to perfection! Then catch your breath for a one-man powerhouse of Beethovian passion, from an artist lauded for his interpretation of the great master’s entire ‘path-breaking’ sonata cycle.

    This performance is presented in Concert Hall Reverse Mode with the audience seated in close proximity to the performers on the Concert Hall stage. Instead of performing to the main auditorium, the artists face the choir balconies and choir retractable seats. This seating arrangement is known as reverse mode and creates an intimate and relaxed atmosphere.
