Edition Wilhelm Hansen


The saxophone concerto Saivo paints a musical portrait of a saxophonist
of a new kind. The word ”saivo” originates from the ancient Sami beliefs
meaning a two-bottomed lake, where under a lake dwells another lake and
another world which is inhabited by otherworldly creatures – a world
that is the exact mirror image of our world. The saxophone concerto
builds sonorous timbral bridges between the effected soprano saxophone
and the orchestra, and grows eventually into an illusion of another
reality which is similar, yet in a peculiar way different than the world
we know. The work was commissioned by Tapiola Sinfonietta and it is
dedicated to the saxophonist Jukka Perko.
