Unsurpassed keyboard technique and flaring showmanship.
Iiro Rantala is an energetic keyboard lion, who crosses music genres and styles with flair and excitement, playing at his exhilarating and adventurous best.
Zany, unconventional and occasionally wicked, yet always entertaining and uncompromising. Iiro is one of the most internationally visible Finnish musicians, and is second to none when it comes to unsurpassed keyboard technique and flaring showmanship. Since starting his career 25 years ago he has performed in 50 countries including a number of times in Australia and released 15 albums.
“A virtuoso who raises versatility to another level, IIRO’s a hero.” – The Evening Standard (UK)
Presented by Henk van Leeuwen.
A virtuoso who raises versatility to another level, IIRO’s a hero.
A virtually unbroken torrent of in-your-face virtuosity, leavened with a delicious sense of humour and a daring eclecticism.
…His playing to put it mildly is virtuoso. One must perhaps go all the way back to Franz Liszt to find the same kind of virtuosity. At least there is lots of romanticism in Rantala.
