This summer we are very pleased to welcome Atte Kilpeläinen, one of the most distinguished Finnish violist of his generation. He has appeared widely as a soloist and chamber musician, among other things as a member of the Meta4 string quartet and is since 2005 the principal violist of the Helsinki Philharmonic. We look forward to welcoming Atte to Reykholt this summer!
