40 minutes chat around Music & Finland.
Pia Siirala studied at the Sibelius Academy, the Budapest Liszt Academy and at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. She is concertmaster of Ensemble XXI, founded by conductor Lygia O’Riordan, with whom she has performed throughout Russia, Europe, Australasia and the Americas.
Pia is currently an associate doctoral researcher at the Sibelius Academy on the music of the indigenous people of North-East Siberia, especially the ancient music of the Chukchi people.
She is one of the most engaging musicians I have met in Finland. It is always a pleasure to talk with her. This time, I made sure to record our chat and share it with all of you.
