Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Touko gets inspiration from the contradictory month of May in Finland. In southern Finland it is the time of blooming, but in the North the snow is still melting. The migratory birds arrive to Finland, including latecomer common swift. May is a month of sorrow and joy – according to researchers it is the most common month to commit suicide in Finland, but at the same time people are celebrating the starting of the summer with various national holidays. The piece is based on recordings of violin, viola, human voice and mouth accompanied by the hisses and pops of sparkling wine.
