This year, Lasse Mårtenson would have turned 90. We are celebrating his unforgettable music with a new concert series.

The Lassen vanavedessä combo is tailored just for this concert series. All of its members have played together in different ensembles and have known each other for a long time. Their most recent joint production was a dramatized concert "Vie meren tuoksuun" at Pori Theatre in 2021–2023. It, too, was based on the melodies of Lasse Mårtenson, and when the performance season ended, the idea arose to go on a tour of the archipelago and concert halls, performing Lasse's music.
