Liebklinge is a work for an improvising soprano saxophone and orchestra. Virtually half of the soloist's role is to improvise, following the composer's guidelines. The saxophonist glides over a restless orchestra, and at time delves into the middle of it. The work was commissioned by the Sibelius Acedemy and is partly based on improvisations by legendary jazz saxophonist David Liebman and Liebman's pianist Richie Beirach, as well as a short composition by Liebman, who performed the premiere of Liebklinge. The chamber orchestra version of the piece was commissioned by the Lapland Chamber Orchestra.
