Hele (2018) was written for the musicians of the Los Angeles
Philharmonic Orchestra. It is set up for an ensemble consisting of
woodwind quintet, trumpet, percussion and string quintet. Wennäkoski
tells about the process: “A composer works with sounds and time, but
also with emotions and images. When starting a new score I usually try
to find an 'overall idea' which can be anything from an atmosphere to a
phenomenon of any kind. Hele is Finnish for a grace note – thus a very
specific expression. It is also very close to a word meaning bright and
light as well.”
