Kasmir Uusitupa_Vaaka_4x3_kuva Tuomas Tenkanen.jpg



Having started playing the violin at the age of three, Kasmir Uusitupa's study path has gone through the Itä-Helsinki Music College and the youth department of the Sibelius Academy to professional studies at the Sibelius Academy of the University of the Arts, the Paris Conservatory and the Swiss International Menuhin Academy, with Kaija Saarikettu, Lauri Untamala, Olivier Charlier, Oleg Kaskiv and Maxim Vengerov as the most important teachers.


Uusitupa's background as a musician includes a generous dose of folk music, which he grew up with while making music with his family. Interest in different genres and improvisation has remained an important part of his musicianship. In addition to his fast-growing soloist and chamber music duties, he visits many orchestras as concertmaster.

Uusitupa has supplemented his music studies with the conducting classes of Jorma Panula and Petri Komulainen. A comprehensive approach to making and studying music has established Uusitupa's position as one of the most versatile musicians of the new generation in Finland.
