    The explosive energy (typical of Tiina Myllärinen, b. 1979) grows in overlapping crescendos. It may be divided into two parts, the expansive first leading to a denser, more layered second. The music is marked off by strong, polyrhythmic eruptions and everdenser crescendos that carry the piece to its close.

    Composed for the chamber music camp at Finns (Espoo, Finland) – where Harri Wessman was the composer-in-residence for many years – this frisky, happy 13-minute music for as many violins and violas (both in unison) as possible accompanied by piano borrows the title from Vivaldi’s Seasons, and fools around with the musical-rhetorical figure of baroque music.

    Antti Auvinen’s (b. 1974) Eliangelis (2005) challenges the conventional way of writing for a monophonic solo instrument: at times the multi-layered multiphonic figures create an illusion of polyfony, and at times the timbres for the clarinet are augmented by a combination of broken sound and pitchless hissing.

    Hele (2018) was written for the musicians of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. It is set up for an ensemble consisting of woodwind quintet, trumpet, percussion and string quintet. Wennäkoski tells about the process: “A composer works with sounds and time, but also with emotions and images. When starting a new score I usually try to find an 'overall idea' which can be anything from an atmosphere to a phenomenon of any kind. Hele is Finnish for a grace note – thus a very specific expression. It is also very close to a word meaning bright and light as well.”

    The six-movement Per speculum in enigmatae suite (Through a glass, darkly) is published for the first time. Melartin assembled it from different separate pieces. The biblical heading maybe has a spiritual rather than a religious connotation, though some of the movements – and the title – are programmatic.

    This work is scored for a string orchestra of twenty players. The piano part is honouring the ‘Beethovenian-Lisztian-Brahmsian’ pianistic tradition. At times it is lean and linear, but the work also contains multi-layered, full-toned piano textures and massive rolling octaves. The 30-minute concerto requires great artistry on the part of the performer. It comprises 3 movements played without a break. Study score: 55011-641-2, € 34,50 Buy now
