The Tuomo Uusitalo Trio, led by pianist Tuomo Uusitalo, will perform on Musiikkitalo's summer terrace.

The Tuomo Uusitalo Trio, formed by Uusitalo, who was last year’s Pori Jazz Artist of the Year, bassist Juuso Rinta and drummer Roope Kantonen, represents a traditional but modern piano trio sound. The ensemble’s gig set includes jazz standards and original compositions written by all three members.

“Uusitalo evokes the rapid-fire élan of Bud Powell, unassuming earthiness of Red Garland and economy of Thelonius Monk.” – The New York City Jazzrecord

“Uusitalo’s music reflects classical music while also retaining a sense of jazz improvisation.” – Jazz Views


Free concerts are held at Musiikkitalo’s terrace on summer afternoons from Wednesday to Saturday, May 29th to Aug 3rd.

The concerts feature talented musicians from the Sibelius Academy of the University of Arts Helsinki, as well as concerts presented by HelsinkiMissio, Organ Night & Aria and World Music Centre. The genres and music vary daily: mostly classical or folk music on Wednesdays, jazz on Fridays and pop on Saturdays.
