This man put me in Finnish media on weekly basis for years

Jan (Janne) Marjotie was that famous photogtapher who was said to have filmed ”only me” during Jussigaala (Finnish Oscars) in 1996. I was the Concertmaster for Sibelius Academy Symphony Orchestra. We played soundtracks from different movies.

I had been in some Finnish TV-series for a while and the man who produced those shows, wanted to present me to the Finnish media a few months later… but… this just happened… After that I became a household name in Finland.

It’s funny (and sad at the same time), that I had played classical concerts around the world for 18 years, when this happened. My hair & makeup reminded of Pamela Andrrson’s look. So, only when I put all that makeup on and curled my long hair, media got interested. In 1996 media wasn’t interested in writing about ”boring” looking classical artists. Weird…

Here’s a video someone put on Youtube from that Jussi gala in 1996…

And here’s Janne, that same photographer, with me, when I performed (televised) in Helsinki in December 2017!
