Helvi Leiviskä anniversary

This year marks the 120th anniversary of the birth of Helvi Leiviskä. Fennica Gehrman has published some sought-after chamber works by her, including her Piano Quartet, Piano Trio and Sonata for Violin and Piano. Also some other pieces have been dug out of the archives. Revised editions of Leiviskä's orchestral works have also been made available, and a few can be heard in autumn 2022: the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra will perform her Sinfonia Brevis on 21 September with Dalia Stasevska conducting, and the Lahti Symphony Orchestra under Anna-Maria Helsing will play her Second Symphony on 6 December.
