Vilma Perkiomaki is a young but already accomplished violinist graduating soon from the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. She was accompanied by Riko Higuma, a seasoned pianist with her own impressive resume, currently teaching at the Manhattan School of Music. The pair gave a nuanced performance of compositions by Bach, Brahms, Glazunov, and Sarasate at the Salmagundi Club to a very appreciative audience. As “the sugar on the bottom” we got to hear an encore, recognized by the Finns in the audience as Eero Järnefelt’s Kehtolaulu (Lullaby).
