Timeshifts – Memorials for the future
This year’s festival edition laments with its title “Timeshifts- memorials for the future “ the lost opportunities that the art world has experienced during the current pandemic and the evident end of an era.
The concert programs explore modernistic narrative and musical techniques that deal with nostalgia, alienation, loss, and multilayered concepts of time.

Tristero Piano Trio established in 2017 consists of leading Finnish versatile chamber musicians on the new music scene in Finland.
Violinist Eriikka Maalismaa, cellist Markus Hohti, and pianist Emil Holmström, together with guitarist Petri Kumela, are in charge of the contemporary chamber music course on music composed after World War II.
In addition to that, Tristero performs two concerts during the festival and premieres Mioko Yokoyama’s Kinesis.
