A composition at its best has everything. The entire life in a single moment. This is how composer Sauli Zinovjev sees it. Zinovjev has quickly become one of the most interesting names in classical music and one of the most played composers of his generation in Finland.

Zinovjev composes music that conveys vast emotions. The kind of music which also made him a composer. He was placed third at the International Uuno Klami Composition Competition in 2014 with Gryf, his breakthrough work. Batteria (2016), commissioned by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, established Zinovjev among the prominent Finnish names in classical music. Batteria represents what is typical for Zinovjev. Combination of styles and composition using his vision. “I could compose if I was deaf but not if I was blind.”

Zinovjev recently finished a violin concerto commissioned by the Oulu Symphony Orchestra for Pekka Kuusisto and is in the midst of composing a cello concerto. Zinovjev’s works are part of the continuum created by the master composers. He uses classical music to make his view of the world intelligible. To convey it – life – to others.
