The award-winning trumpet great Verneri Pohjola returns to G Livelab. This time around he takes the stage with his longtime collaborator, percussionist Mika Kallio and a string ensemble consisting of some of the key players in the Finnish scene. Here they will perform arrangements of original compositions by Verneri's father, the late Pekka Pohjola, as well as compositions by Verneri himself.
