Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jukka Linkola writes: "The Lieksa Brass Festival commissioned me to compose a euphonium concerto for summer 1996. Until then I had been relatively unfamiliar with this instrument. I had, indeed, heard its splendid sound in various connections and had wondered why it was not used in symphonic and big band combinations. The wide register and sonority of the euphonium and also its amazing agility were a source of inspiration as I set about the composition. My Euphonium Concerto is unashamedly melodic music and possibly the most "romantic" of my more extensive works. I wanted to exploit to the full the songlike, sensuous quality as a vehicle to interpret the minutest nuance." Jukka Linkola has been particularly active in jazz and music for the Read more stage. In the field of serious music his compositions for both large and small ensembles of brass instruments have commanded special attention. Juha T. Koskinen studied composition at the Sibelius Academy with Kalevi Aho, Anders Eliasson and Paavo Heininen. Since 1997, he has continued in Kaija Saariaho's master class in composition. Oliver Kohlenberg was born in Germany and studied with Lygeti, Klaus Huber and in Helsinki under Rautavaara. He has taught at the Kajanni and Oulu Conservatories. Read less
