Jyrki Linjama at 60

Composer Jyrki Linjama is celebrating his 60th anniversary this year. Linjama is a composer especially known for his church music although his work list consists equally of sacred and more profane music. He has composed a wealth of chamber, vocal and instrumental works including several pieces for organ. His impressive opera Three Letters to Laestadius takes a stand against bigotry and the narrow role of women in religious circles.
