Drei Sonette an Orpheus

Music Finland

Description

These three songs are based on poems found in Rainer Maria Rilke’s famous Sonette an Orpheus. It was an exciting task to try to create a music that reflects the dense and intellectually demanding, yet at the same time lyrical and crystal-clear atmosphere of the poems.
