Einojuhani Rautavaara : Suite de Lorca : SSAA : 01 Songbook : 073999985825 : 48000662

Einojuhani Rautavaara : Suite de Lorca

The Lorca suite is probably Rautavaara's most popular choral work. The combination of Lorca's poetry and the soaring melodic lines of the music make it a true pearl of contemporary choral literature. Rautavaara has injected each of the four movements of the suite with its own unmistakable character. Text: Federico Garcia Lorca (Spanish/Finnish), duration: 7 minutes.

Einojuhani Rautavaara : The First Runo : Treble SSAA : 01 Songbook : 073999941852 : 48000687

Einojuhani Rautavaara : The First Runo

The First Runo is unusual in that it is a setting of part of the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic, in an English translation rather than the original Finnish. Rautavaara has chosen the very first poem of the Kalevala, which describes the creation of the world according to Finnish mythology. Rautavaara uses a shimmering vocal texture to paint an image of the primeval lake. Duration: 8 minutes.

Einojuhani Rautavaara : Our Joyful'st Feast  : SAATTBB : 01 Songbook : 888680033132 : 0851627994 : 48022653

Einojuhani Rautavaara : Our Joyful'st Feast

This Christmas carol, commissioned by the Finnish broadcasting company Yle and first performed in Helsinki by Helsinki Chamber Choir, conducted by Nils Schweckendiek, is based on three texts, two by William Shakespeare and one by George Wither. The largely homophonic textures combine with Rautavaara's characteristically rich and often chromatic harmonies to form a very effective and satisfying work, a bit different from the usual Christmas offering.

Erik Bergman : Dreams : SSAA : 01 Songbook : 073999931044 : 48000590

Erik Bergman : Dreams

Dreams is in many ways a sister work to Bergman's Lapponia, particularly in terms of the sound material it uses. However, the atmosphere of the world it inhabits is more intangible and dream-like, as its name suggests. Text: wordless, duration 13 minutes.
