TampereRaw was born in 2001 when a few musicians from Tampere Filharmonia wanted to establish a way of introducing Tampere audiences to New Music. The first performances of the ensemble were planned by composer Jouni Kaipainen. These set out the founding principle of TampereRaw: to gather together musicians who approach New Music with no prejudice or preconceptions and to create thematic events featuring contemporary works. During the past few years TampereRaw has also participated in a number of cross-disciplinary creative projects with artists from a variety of fields beyond the world of classical music.

Cecilia Damström, born into a multicultural family in Helsinki, languages and the possibility of combining languages, have always appealed to her while composing. With a background as a classical pianist and with theatre as an interest, also harmony, direction, a sense of drama, and expressivity are always present in her music.

Cecilia Damström’s compositions have received several national and international composition prizes 2009- 2018. Her fairytale opera Dumma Kungen won the award for “Children opera of the year” in 2018. In 2019 she made her debut with the Finnish National Opera with her school opera Djurens planet. Her works for orchestra have been performed by Jyväskylä Sinfonia (2016 & 2018), Gävle Symphony Orchestra (2018), Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra (2018) and Avanti! (2011) as well as at festivals such as Young Nordic Music Days in Aarhus (2016) and Tampering (2014, 2015 and 2017). Since 2019 she is signed with one of the biggest music publishers in the Nordic countries, Gehrmans Musikförlag.

Kaarina Hazard is a Finnish writer and actor, who won a Minna Canth -prize in 2018. She has writen a text for our concert about Minna Canth and Aino Sibelius. The text will be read in English by the composer of our concert, Cecilia Damström.
