New works distributed by Music Finland
Antti Auvinen: Twelve Fn Kies for Moog and Big Band
This work by composer Antti Auvinen was performed at a shopping centre in Helsinki city center during Musica nova Helsinki in February. As informed at the festival website, this “multi-level, rhythmically pulsating work operates with the meaning of space both in its performing venues but also in leaving space – freedom and openness – for the soloist and orchestra. The Moog synthesizer played by Kari Ikonen is the focus of each of the 12 movements of this concerto composed in close collaboration with the soloist.”
A pedagogic suite of five small pieces for piano by Marina Kostik, one of the latest composers to join Music Finland’s catalogue.
Timothy Page: Hypha for piano and violin
This duo for piano and violin by Timothy Page is to be performed “with impeccable rhythm and danceable groove, but dynamically and timbrally capricious”. Credit card is needed not only to purchase the score but also for producing percussive sounds with piano’s strings inside the instrument.
Sauli Zinovjev: A Due for flute and guitar
According to Sauli Zinovjev, background of this duet is in the mystical Japan nature. Inspired by texts of Japan author Haruki Murakami and Finnish poet Sirkka Turkka, A Due observes the present – straying, pausing and confronting.
Roope Mäenpää: Ja täällä sataa lunta for clarinet and string quartet
Ja täällä sataa lunta (“And it is snowing here”) was commissioned by ensemble TampereRaw for the memory concert of composer Jouni Kaipainen (1956–2016). Roope Mäenpää was Kaipainen’s student. In addition to composing classical music this young composer has composed numerous theatre productions and video pieces, and he also works actively as a musician.
