Explore the magic of Nordic mastery with two of Australia’s most in-demand musicians.
In this evening of mesmerising melodies, Principal Violin of the Australian Chamber Orchestra Satu Vänskä and modern piano maestro Konstantin Shamray unite for an exploration of the enchanting landscapes of Finland and beyond.

Having graced some of the top stages in the world including Sydney Opera House and the Barbican, Satu – the Japanese-born, Finnish violin luminary – shares a more intimate side of her highly celebrated music-making in this unique Primrose Potter Salon concert experience. Meanwhile, Konstantin, renowned for his expertise in delivering captivating performances brimming with ‘fierce virtuosity and intense expressivity’ (Sydney Morning Herald) has cemented himself as one of Australia’s top pianists since taking out first place at the 2008 Sydney International Piano Competition.

Often considered the successor to Jean Sibelius, this performance commences with Aulis Sallinen’s haunting Cadenza for Solo Violin before embarking into the mind of Sibelius himself with excerpts from piano and violin works from the latter half of the composer’s life.

Finally, a short trip across the Baltic Sea and the evening concludes in Germany with Beethoven’s Sonata No.8 in G for Piano and Violin. With sheer power and grace, this performance by two of Australia’s great musicians is an inspiring collaboration at its finest.
