Kasperi‌ ‌Sarikoski‌ ‌(trb)‌ ‌

Despite‌ ‌his‌ ‌young‌ ‌age,‌ ‌Kasperi‌ ‌Sarikoski‌ ‌(b.‌ ‌1988)‌ ‌does‌ ‌not‌ ‌need‌ ‌further‌ ‌introduction,‌ ‌as‌ ‌he‌ ‌undoubtedly belongs‌ ‌to the‌ ‌leading‌ ‌and‌ most‌ ‌luminous‌ ‌musicians‌ ‌in‌ ‌our‌ ‌country.‌ ‌His‌ ‌academic‌ ‌career‌ ‌started‌ ‌in‌ ‌Sibelius‌ ‌Academy’s‌ jazz ‌department‌,‌ ‌while‌ ‌he‌ ‌finished‌ ‌his‌ ‌master’s‌ ‌degree‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ famous‌ ‌Juilliard‌ ‌School‌ ‌in‌ ‌New‌ ‌York.‌ ‌As‌ ‌a‌ ‌skillful‌ ‌musician‌, ‌Sarikoski‌ ‌shines‌ ‌brightly‌ ‌no‌ ‌matter‌ ‌if‌ ‌he‌ ‌is‌ ‌playing‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌big‌ ‌band‌ ‌or‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌soloist.‌ ‌For‌ ‌his‌ ‌solo‌ ‌concert‌, ‌Sarikoski‌ ‌has‌ ‌created‌ ‌an‌ ‌interesting‌ ‌concept:‌ ‌he‌ ‌will‌ ‌only‌ ‌perform‌ ‌great‌ ‌songs!‌ ‌The‌ ‌program‌ ‌could‌ ‌be‌ ‌described‌ ‌as‌ ‌a‌ ‌mix‌ ‌and‌ ‌match‌ ‌set‌ ‌of‌ ‌songs, compromised ‌of‌ ‌both‌ ‌American‌ ‌and‌ ‌Finnish‌ classics‌. ‌”A‌ ‌solo‌ ‌concert‌ ‌is‌ ‌always‌ ‌a‌ ‌huge‌ ‌challenge‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌performer;‌ ‌you‌ ‌have‌ ‌to‌ ‌give‌ ‌all‌ ‌you’ve‌ ‌got‌ ‌and‌ ‌stretch‌ your‌ ‌creative‌ ‌limits‌, ‌in‌ ‌order‌ ‌to‌ keep ‌the‌ ‌audience‌ interested ‌until‌ ‌the‌ ‌very‌ ‌end‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌concert”,‌ ‌Sarikoski‌ ‌ponders.‌ ‌
