Iiro Rantala

Iiro Rantala, born in 1970, is a major public figure and musical advocate in Finland. As a teenager, he was playing in several jazz and pop groups around Finland. When his Trio Töykeät was formed in 1988, Rantala concentrated on this group for 18 years. The trio were known for a unique combination of deep musicality and madcap humour, and played over 2,000 shows in forty-five countries. At age of 26, Rantala also started a career in classical music, playing Mozart concertos and Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with Finlands leading orchestras.

He has published his autobiography “Nyt sen voi jo kertoa” (Now It Can Be Told, 2011) and has written music for dozens of plays and musicals, as well as a few feature length films. He has also hosted a piano festival and a concert series at the Allotria club in Helsinki. He has been running the Jazz Piano Festival at Kapsäkki since 2011. In 2013 he was given Finland’s highest award for artists the Pro Finlandia medal, and in 2015 a substantial five-year grant for artistic work by Finnish state. He was awarded the 2012 ECHO Jazz award for Best International Pianist, the annual prize of the Deutsche Schallplattenkritik and the German Jazz GOLD Award, to name but a few.

The Erlkings

A young, energetic quartet with the courage to translate the works of Goethe, Heine, Schiller or Müller into wholly new and original English versions, finally offering the moving beauty of these poems to a broader international audience. The anglophone versions of The Erlkings open the ears to a new experience of these songs, delighting audiences wherever they are heard — whether in the finest concert house, a high spirited beer hall, or a sleepy mountain hotel. Speaking of spirited beer halls: you are explicitly invited to eat and drink during this performance!

Please note: A supper plate (11,90 € p. p., payable at the restaurant) is pre-ordered for you. Changes or cancellations are possible via phone: 0049 (0)6221 502980. The tickets still available are listening places without a view of the stage.
