Joonas Kokkonen centenary in 2021

Year 2021 marks the centenary of the birth of Joonas Kokkonen. A leading figure in the history of Finnish music, he is especially known for his symphonies and his opera The Last Temptations which will be performed at Jyväskylä Theatre from 31 December 2021 onwards. The Jyväskylä Sinfonia will be conducted by Ville Matvejeff. Fennica Gehrman has published a piano reduction of the opera to honour the centenary. First publications of his works are now also available in our web shop such as Sub rosa and The Hades of the Birds (Lintujen tuonela).
