Welcome to the official website of clarinettist Kari Kriikku

“Afterward, there was a surprised buzz in the auditorium as listeners confessed to loving a sometimes furiously dissonant piece”.   As reported in the New Yorker in March 2010 it is not an uncommon occurrence for this consumate artist to bring his audience to its’ feet, even if the repertoire, or Kriikku himself, is being heard for the first time.   On this occasion Kari Kriikku had performed Magnus Lindberg’s concerto for his New York Philharmonic debut in Spring 2010 in Carnegie Hall under the baton of Alan Gilbert.
