Livestream with Michael Mc.Glynn, Isaac S. Cates and Linda Lampenius

www.youtube.com/watch

The livestream last night https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Em-N-nptVyQ&feature=youtu.be gave us all much to ponder. The situation in the USA 😢 Gospel. Feelings and colours in music. Soloists vs ensemble musicians. What’s an artists mission actually? We should always serve the composer, the audience and the music. It was amazing listening to Isaac 🙌 Thank you Michael and Isaac!!! ❤️❤️ •

Documentary and autobiography

I filmed my life almost daily with a digital video camera between 1997 and 2006. I’ve carried those tapes (hundreds) with me from country to country. My parents had also filmed me when I was a child. Now these tapes will be useful in the making of a documentary about my life.

Masked Singer

Masked Singer

Wow!!! Kiitos että sain olla mukana! Mikä kokemus! Olen pelännyt laulamista ihan jumalattomasti, vaikka vanhempani olivat sekä näyttelijöitä että laulajia. Esiinnyin laulaen vanhempieni kanssa kun olin 3-11 vuotias, mutten koskaan sen jälkeen. Lähdin mukaan Masked Singer kilpailuun vaikka inhosin ääntäni, koska Anne Wahlström pyysi minua. Anne ja minä olimme työskennelleet yhdessä kun olin Pertti Pasasen ”opissa” ja olin mukana Uuno Turhapuro sarjassa, Bingo Lotossa ja Speden Speleissä. ”Spede” sanoi minulle kun en uskonut itseeni ”Olet kuule sellainen likka ettet itsekään ymmärrä!” Se sai minut uskaltamaan. Nyt voin vihdoinkin katsoa ohjelmaa hermostumatta. Kaikki ovat niin jumalattoman hyviä!!! Kiitos kaikille jotka äänestivät minua ja megakiitos Annelle ❤️ Joonakselle, kaikille tuotannossa mukana olleille, tanssijoille, Jannelle, Reijalle, Fremantlelle ja MTV3lle!!!! ❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️ Haleja kaikille suomalaisille!! 🇫🇮💞 T.

Linda Lampenius Brava on Eurotrash

Linda Lampenius Brava on Eurotrash

This was the way the super popular TV-show ”Eurotrash” (Jean-Paul Gaultier) introduced me to Europe in 1997… I was the spokesperson for Björn Borg and that was a character I did at the fashion shows. It was SO MUCH FUN!! I was a classical artist all the time. These fashion shows and photo shoots were something I did for less than 20 days of my life!! (I’m just laughing about the fact that they called me ”supermodel”😜) If you get stuck in a box and never dare to do anything funny and different, life will become boring. Eurotrash was a humorous TV show, like a comedy show. I come from a theatre family and all quirky stuff is normal. It doesn’t make me less of a classical violinist/artist. Have a great week! 😃🍁❤️

Hugh Hefner and Gene Simmons talking about Linda Lampenius Brava

😍 Hef talking about me at the Playboy Mansion (the launch of my Playboy issue) and Gene Simmons telling the reporter that KISS wanted me to open for their concert in Finland, but I was already booked for another performance.

Those were great times in LA and especially at the Mansion!!! Thanx Hef! ❤️🙏❤️

THANK YOU Alison Reynolds for introducing me to Hef!!!! ❤️🙏❤️ Without you nothing of this would have happened.

Kärleksfulla kollegor

Saknar de här två UNDERBARA kvinnorna!!! ❤️❤️ De hör till de rätt så få kvinnor som backar upp och stöttar andra kvinnor och inte sticker kniven i ryggen på kollegor och bekanta. Jag förknippar Carina och Sonja med orden vänskap, hjärtlighet, värme, godhet och ärlighet. Jag önskar att fler kvinnor vore som ni: @carinaenilsson och @sonjaalden ❤️❤️🙏🙏 #vänskap #ärlighet #värme #sonjaaldén #carinaenilsson #artist #pianist #sångerska #singer #violinist #lindalampenius

New classical piano trio

New classical piano trio

I’m truly happy and proud to announce that I’m now part of a new piano trio.

Pianist Laura Mikkola:

Finnish pianist Laura Mikkola has studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and the University School of Music in Bloomington, Indiana.

Ms Mikkola has been the recipient of many awards, among them the second prize in the prestigious Queen Elisabeth International Piano Competition of Brussels (1995), the first prize in the International Unisa Transnet Piano Competition in Pretoria, Republic of South Africa, the first prize in the Maj Lind Competition in Helsinki (1992), and the first prize in the International M. Ravel Piano Competition in France (1988). Ms Mikkola has been a soloist with Helsinki Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra of St Petersbourg (Kirov), Wiener Kammerorkester, The Residentie Orkest, among others.

She has had recitals all over Europe, in Japan, the USA, South Africa, Columbia and Chile. She has been invited to the Festival International de Colmar, the 14th Festival de Música de Canarias, the Helsinki Festival, the Glories of the Keyboard in England, Yokohama International Piano Concert Festival and many others.

She has been performing with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Leif Segerstam, Osmo Vänskä, Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Sergiu Comissiona.

Ms Mikkola’s Suntory Hall début took place in 1995, Carnegie Hall début (at Weill Recital Hall) in 1996 and the Hollywood Bowl début with Maestro Esa-Pekka Salonen and the L.A. Philharmonic in 1997.

Cellist Perttu Kivilaakso:

Perttu Kivilaakso is the solo celllist in the world-renowned group Apocalyptica. Like fellow band members Eicca Toppinen and Paavo Lötjönen, he attended Sibelius Academy

Kivilaakso has received many prizes and awards during his life as a classical cellist. Among them is winning third place in the world-renowned second International Paulo Cello Competition in 1996 at age 18. Shortly after, he attained a lifetime chair in the Helsinki Philharmonic orchestra.

Kivilaakso has also composed music for the video game Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, a few documentary films, as well as many original compositions for Apocalyptica, including ”Conclusion, ”Farewell” and ”Beautiful”. His first opera, that he composed with his Apocalyptica bandmate Eicca Toppinen, was premiered at the Finnish National Opera on 22 January 2016. The opera, entitled ”Indigo,” tells ”a story of an omnipotent, multinational company and a search for happiness”.

Kivilaakso is an opera buff, which began while attending performances as a very young child at the annual Savonlinna Opera Festival. His father would play in the orchestra, and young Kivilaakso was entranced by both the music and the performances. Kivilaakso was three when he first asked his mother what he had to do to get onstage. He has a huge collection of opera recordings, including many rare and hard-to-find ones. His favourite composer is Italian Giuseppe Verdi, and his favourite opera is Il Trovatore.

Violinist Linda Lampenius:

Lampenius began studying the violin at the age of five, under the guidance of Géza Szilvay, the developer of the Colourstrings method. Brava’s career then began as a member and soloist of the Helsinki Strings at the age of seven.

Throughout her childhood Lampenius toured all around the world with the Helsinki Strings, giving concerts in London, New York City, Tokyo, et cetera. As a child violinist, she also appeared on Finnish TV numerous times as part of the artistic-educational TV series Minifiddlers in Musicland on YLE TV.

In fairly rapid succession Lampenius was awarded a scholarship by the Swedish Cultural Foundation for being such a promising young violinist, became Concertmistress of the Helsinki Strings, and performed as a soloist of the Radio Symphony Orchestra of Finland at the age of 11.

Lampenius has performed chamber music all around Europe, Asia, and the USA, working with various pianists, including Timo Koskinen, Folke Gräsbeck, Laura Mikkola, Carina E. Nilsson, Linn Hendry, and John Lenehan. Lampenius has also made many solo orchestral appearances. In addition to Finnish and Swedish city orchestras, she has played with La Scala Opera Orchestra and toured with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

Lampenius was invited personally by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber to perform as the soloist in ”Metal Philharmonic” at Sydmonton Festival in England.

Lampenius has also appeared as a soloist of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. In addition to head lining music festivals with José Carreras and Kevin Kenner, Lampenius has also toured with Paul Potts and performed with Andrea Griminelli.

In addition to Sweden Lampenius has continued performing internationally as well. Some of her special appearances have included performances for the NATO troops in Kosovo, the Rhapsody in Rock show at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and violin concerts in Astana, Kazakhstan, Irkutsk, Siberia, and the Cannes Film Festival in South of France.

In 2010 Lampenius performed in the last concert of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra’s Summer Concert Series, playing works by Turlough Carolan, Michael William Balfe, and Michael McGlynn. She also appeared as a soloist of the Royal Swedish Chamber Orchestra in the grand finale concert of the 40th Annual Royal Palace Music Festival at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. In 2011 Lampenius toured as a soloist of the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra Vienna.

With her 1781 Gagliano violin Lampenius has performed for many heads of state and royals, including the President of Finland, Prince of Monaco, and the Royal Family of Sweden. Lampenius has also played for various European and American politicians, including the United States Secretary of Defense William Perry.
