"..a physically flamboyant player of Olympian virtuosity…"

The New York Times

"Afterward, there was a surprised buzz in the auditorium as listeners confessed to loving a sometimes furiously dissonant piece"

[NY Philharmonic / Alan Gilbert / Carnegie Hall / Magnus Lindberg concerto].    

As reported in the New Yorker it is not an uncommon occurrence for this consumate artist to bring his audience to its’ feet, even if the repertoire, or Kriikku himself, is being heard for the first time.

Kari Kriikku’s musical inventiveness and fresh attitude towards traditional performances not only as a soloist, commissioner but also as Artistic Director of Avanti! Chamber Orchestra, have been further recognized when in 2009, Kari Kriikku was announced recipient of the prestigious Nordic Council Music Prize. 

He will perform Kimmo Hakola's Clarinet Concerto (Singapore Premiere) with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra on 20 Jan 2018 at the Esplanade Concert Hall.
