Seppo Pohjola composed his fifth string quartet in winter 2018. He was inspired to write it by a visit to the van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam the previous year, where he was greatly impressed by the vast, comprehensive retrospective and especially the horrifyingly honest self-portraits. The soft opening tones bear an instruction alluding to Schönberg’s Verklärte Nacht string sextet: the quiet music must be richly shaded. Dur. 20 minutes.

Sinuhe is based on the best-seller book by Mika Waltari and it acts as an example of a Finnish composition founded on a non-Finnish subject handled in a non-National-Romantic way. The Oriental moods and the Nile do not correspond to the view of a Finnish composition as one favouring topics from the national epic, the Kalevala, and lakeland scenery. The ballet’s combination of a historical subject with an exotic, stylised idiom showed that Englund had his finger on the international pulse, like Barber’s Medea and Khachaturian’s Spartacus.

Englund's Piano Trio (1982) is sombre in mood. In the second movement, Englund’s trademark playfulness carries a hint of sarcasm and at times builds up to a wild militant dance before finally melting into reconciliation. The piano part is the manuscript of the composer.

Lintinen's concerto (2012-13) is full of rhythmic drive. The orchestra is handled as a large chamber ensemble in which listening closely to the other players is both possible and of supreme importance. All four movements of the concerto are joined together, and their titles say something: prefazione, danze, confessione and finale. Duration ca. 23 minutes.

Kai Nieminen’s two guitar pieces pay homage to 20th century French compositions: Le Tombeau de Darius Milhaud (2021) draws inspiration from Milhaud’s short guitar composition Segoviana (1957) and Joan Miro’s series of paintings called The Dutch Interiors (1928). Le Tombeau d’Albert Roussel (2020) utilises themes and harmonies from Roussel’s ballet-pantomime Le Festin de l’Araignée (The Spider’s Feast) op.17 written in 1912.

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.
