Joonas Kokkonen: Lintujen tuonela (The Hades of the Birds) for mezzo-soprano & piano

Piano reduction available for the first time! Originally for voice & orchestra, Kokkonen’s The Hades of the Birds consists of three songs, two shorter ones framing a longer middle one. The chosen poems were by P. Mustapää and their appeal lay for him in their “simply unique mysticism”. The music merges seamlessly with the moods of the poems, closely reacting to the textual nuances.
