Einojuhani Rautavaara 85th Anniversary Concert

In the autumn of 2013, the University of Oulu organized a gala concert in its Saalasti hall for the Finnish composer maestro Einojuhani Rautavaara, honoring his long and significant career and life’s work. The highlight of the concert was Peter Lönnqvist’s piano arrangement of Cantus Arcticus, interpreted by Laura Mikkola. The university produced a CD recording of the concert, the revenue of which was reserved for a fund to support young composers. The composer himself was able to enjoy the concert live at home thanks to the streaming technology set up by Ilmari Mäenpää.

I worked as the recorder, mixer and mastering engineer in the project.

The record was produced by the University of Oulu, for which I also provided consulting assistance at various stages of record production.
