Welcome to the website of PAUHA-trio! 

About us

We are a Finnish clarinet-viola-piano trio, founded in 2021 by Miska Matero (clarinet), Veikko Marjamäki (viola) and Kalle Peura (piano). Though Finnish by origin, PAUHA is a most cosmopolitan lineup with Kalle active in Dublin and Veikko in Stockholm. Our "maiden voyage" was an extensive tour of Northern Finland during August 2022. We strive to perform both old and new repertoire, and look forward to working with young composers and premiering new music in every new project. In 2022 we had the privilege to premiere a new trio by the up and coming Finnish composer Elisar Riddelin. 

Something old, something new and something forgotten is our motto.

Veikko Marjamäki, viola

Originally from Asikkala, I began playing violin at the age of 6 and changed for the viola at age 14 with Juhani Palola as my teacher at Lahti Conservatory. I have also lived in Vienna and attended Musikgymnasium Wien and later after returning to Finland Tiirismaa Music High school.After high school I did my military service in the Conscript band of the Finnish Defence Forces. Thereafter I studied viola with Sari Aalto at the Helsinki Conservatory graduating in spring 2017. Simultaneously I studied musicology at Helsinki University. Since 2017 I have been living in Sweden and studying at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm finishing my soloistic bachelors degree in viola in spring 2021 and now pursuing studies in the orchestral masters programme. My teacher during all of this has been Göran Fröst.
I have attended masterclasses by among others the following teachers. Atso Lehto, Torsten Tiebout, Ivan Vukcevic, Pascal Siffert, Lise Berthaud, Dana Zemtsov and Matthias Buchholz. I have orchestral experience from a. o. the Wegelius Chamber Orchestra, Aurora Symphony Orchestra and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. In spring 2022 I'm doing my internship with the Kungliga Hovkapellet in Stockholm. Furthermore I've studied baroque viola with Ann Wallström and Kreeta- Maria Kentala.

Miska Matero, clarinet

I started my clarinet studies in Kuhmo music school at the age of 12. At adolescence clarinet was set aside and after considering other professional options I decided to approach towards career in music in 2014. After graduating from Helsinki conservatory in 2017, I continued my studies to Estonian academy of music until 2020. Right now I am studying clarinet pedagogy in Tampere.  I dream of future where I get to combine my time as a teacher and a musician. 

Kalle Peura, piano

I was born to a family from Lapland, but I grew up in Kauhava in Southern Ostrobothnia. At the age of 13 I started playing the piano. I have studied at the Helsinki Conservatory of Music, The Academy of Music and Opera in Västerås, The Liceu Conservatory in Barcelona and The Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin. I have performed in over 30 different ensembles, played a tour of solo recitals around Lapland, provided background music for a dinner at an officer's club, and taught music theory and solfege to a senior manager at Google. Along my way I have been helped by many great musicians, among them the likes of Barry Douglas, Stanislav Pochekin, Liisa Pohjola, Erik T. Tawaststjärna, Simon Crawford Phillips, Lance Coburn, Juhani Lagerspetz, Nino Gvetadze and Heikki Pellinen.
