Fennica Gehrman has signed a publishing agreement with Iiro Rantala who has received an exciting opera commission from Germany: Die Zaubermelodika will be premiered at the Komische Oper Berlin in October 2021. A sequel to Die Zauberflöte, the opera features the same cast – with a characteristic Rantala twist to the libretto by Minna Lindgren. Rantala’s first opera, Pikaparantola (Sanatorio Express), will receive its Australian premiere on 24.10.2021. Rantala's Double Concerto for violin, piano and orchestra is to be premiered in January 2022 by the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, his orchestra partner for many years.
Fennica Gehrmna has published two new Rantala collections: Ajatuksia (Pieces of My Mind) and Hymyilevä Apollo (Smiling Apollo) which are available in our web shop.
