Helvi Leiviskä’s symphonies were born from her experiences of a holistic vision, a visual revelation. “In fact, my musical pursuit and my search for eternal values are quite indistinguishable.” Leiviskä considered her Sinfonia brevis, which she completed in 1962, to be her fourth symphony.
“A fire-breathing virtuoso!” (Gramophone), “Liszt reincarnate!” (Fanfare), “Young tsar of the piano” (Classica). Music magazines around the world have used superlative metaphors to describe this evening’s piano soloist.
