The qualitative elements of bars with their upbeats, accents and GPs create a refined musical rhetoric in this piece for bassoon and piano. The roguish poetic metres gambol jerkily along, and although at surface level the music may appear guileless, Lintinen knows his polyphony, judging by the capital roving of his voices even in the homophonic textures.

Venezuelan trumpet virtuoso Pacho Flores asked Tuomas Turriago to write a piece for a recital in April 2019. The composer tells: "My half-Colombian soul fell in love with the Venezuelan dance merengue at once when it was introduced to me and it has been an important construction material in my music ever since. I decided to combine two of my favourite rhythms, tango and merengue; hence the name Tanguerengue. It is one of my happiest compositions and gives an enormous amount of room for groovy rhythmical play and limitless trumpet virtuosity."
