Vanha kirkko Petäjävedellä

Schott Music


An old church near Petäjävesi forms the works starting point. Mustonen evokes its history in each of the works movements Die Kirchenbauer, Die Berührung des Heiligen, Dämonen, Der heilige Christophorus and Apotheosis.
After the community of Petäjävesi in the heart of Finland had waited
two years for permission to build the church, they began to build it
themselves in 1763. The small wooden church in the style of a log cabin
stands on a peninsula between two lakes and was listed as a UNESCO World
Cultural Heritage site in 1994.
