Kari Kriikku gives Singapore premiere of Kimmo Hakola’s clarinet concerto

16.01.2018

Kari Kriikku returns to Singapore this week with a premiere of Kimmo Hakola’s clarinet concerto with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Lim Yau.

The concerto was written for Kari and he has performed it throughout the world since its premiere with the AVANTI! Chamber Orchestra in 2001. His recording of the work with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Sakari Oramo (Ondine, 2006) was described as “a firework of dances, explosions and colours”.
