Veli Kujala, harmonica
Esa Pietilä, saxophone
For years, the Turku Music Festival has included a variety of home concerts. The 2023 Music Festival home concert series will once again take us to the home of Finland’s most famous design couple!
Kujala-Pietilä Treatment: Veli Kujala (accordion) and Esa Pietilä (saxophone), known as consummate masters of their respective instruments, as composers and as masterful improvisers, set up a new and innovative duo in 2013, focusing partly on composed and partly on fully improvised material. Their music makes effective use of live electronics, jazz and contemporary music. Their unique performances and sound could be described as massive, captivating, electric, virtuosic, tense and even raw, not to speak of epithets such as minimalist or sensitively playful. The duo’s mind-expanding sound worlds and rhythmic layering magically transport to musical spaces never before experienced.
Before and after the concerts our host couple offer the opportunity to buy coffee and products from their own selection.
