The UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra gets a rare nuance from a slightly larger wind instrument, when the big band and organist Susanne Kujala join forces. The concert, which elegantly combines different musical worlds from the classical and jazz sides, will feature the premiere of Markus Fagerudd, the symphonic Ellington and an organ concert by the Swedish Örjan Fahlström. The concert is conducted by Jukka Linkola.

Markus Fagerudd: Concerto for organ and big band ’Gandai’ (premiere, 24’)
Susanne Kujala, organ
