Music Finland

Description

This piece draws its inspiration from a meteorological phenomenon that you can experience e.g. in Helsinki, my home city, in clear weather, especially in the early summer: although the sun shines, its light is filtered through a mist above the sea. While staying in Benin, West Africa, in the town of Grand Popo in December 2006 and January 2007, in conditions widely different from those of my native Finland, I saw this same exciting combination of sun and mist in the morning. My piece is dedicated to the great French piano composers of the early, middle and late 20th century.
