Kalevi Aho keeps getting orders for concertos. He has finished a Triple Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano to be premiered by the Storioni Trio and the Antwerp SO in May 2019, and is at present composing a Concerto for Guitar and Chamber Orchestra also for a premiere in May 2019 by Ismo Eskelinen and the Lapland Chamber Orchestra. Also planned for next year is a Concerto for Bass Clarinet for Mikko Raasakka. One for two bassoons and orchestra has further been commissioned on the initiative of bassoonist Bram van Sambeek.
Aho’s Sieidi for percussion, has become one of the most performed Finnish concertos. It has already been played nearly 50 times across the world, with soloists Colin Currie, Martin Grubinger and Alexej Gerassimez.
