RSO & Maija Hynninen's Oboe Concerto

The Finnish RSO premiered Maija Hynninen's oboe concerto Incandescence on 10 February at the Musica Nova festival. The concert was broadcast live on Yle Teema, Yle Areena and Yle Radio 1. Hynninen's concerto was chosen for the list of recommended works in the IV International Uuno Klami Composition Competition. Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel The Waves it glows in different colours and the highly virtuosic solo part glimmers and glides over the fluctuating textures of the orchestra.
