Roope Mäenpää: Lähi for violin and clarinet

Lähi (Finnish for ”near”, ”close by”) for violin and clarinet was composed in a situation when the COVID-19 pandemic had shut down most of the society in the spring 2020. Lähi is a diary-entry like vignette, a picture of a moment, of the fear and anxiety caused by the sudden situation – but also a sounding memory of intimacy and closeness. Dur. 4 mins. Buy now
