Fridrich Bruk


Born in Ukraine, Fridrich Bruk has been living in Finland since 1974. His new homeland has substantially inspired his output as a composer: he has sought inspiration in Finnish culture, including the Kalevala and folk songs but also including Finland’s tragic wars. “Bruk has asserted his own individuality in the varied landscape that is Finnish music. He has done so by embracing native Finnish material in a way that nourishes his own distinctive brand of early 20th-century free-tonal music,” writes Rob Barnett.
