Liisa Pohjola in memory

It is with deep sadness we received the message of the passing of dear colleague, pianist and professor, Liisa Pohjola, on New Year Eve, 85 years of age.

We had the pleasure of having Liisa as guest professor at the academy, and experienced her fine artistery and beautiful mind during master classes in May 2016.

We shine peace upon Liisa Pohjola’s memory
