A Composer’s Diary: Video recording of ICE

A Composer's Diary: Video recording of ICE

Summer has finally come to Finland and German but my heart and mind is currently full of ICE!

Thanks for all of my Instagram followers super inspirational suggestions on music inspired by ice, now my own piece ICE for Sinfonia Lahti and the city of Lahti is finally ready and recorded! Video premiere coming up in August and the concert premiere was announced only this week: January 20th 2022 by Sinfonia Lahti conducted by their amazing brand new chief conductor Dalia Stasevska. 

Thank you Sinfonia Lahti and Dalia for an incredible job and can’t wait for everyone to hear what an marvellous interpretation you did of my piece!

And congratulations to the city of Lahti for being the Green Capital of Europe 2021!

Here is a small sneak peek behind the scenes of recording ICE on the 7th of May with Sinfonia Lahti and Dalia Stasevska!

Was such a fun experience to finally get to work with the fantastic Dalia Stasevska! Amazing on the podium, in rehearsal, in every single way!

Video premiere recorded for August, concert premiere coming up on her first #Mixtape concert on January 20th 2022! So happy that my music is included in Dalia’s first season as chief conductor!

ICE for Sinfonia Lahti is commissioned in honour of Lahti being the European Green Capital 2021. The piece is inspired by melting ice and in the piece we can hear how landscapes and winter become ever shorter, in the end while alarm signals are chiming and all possible breaks are put into action. Through this piece I try to express how global warming as well as the collapse of ecosystems and the ever faster growing tempo of the world, is killing the beautiful snow and ice structures of millions of years, and how the heart of the earth is fighting for its existence through each beat. In this piece I have also tried to describe what happens if we WILL take action: you can hear a rewind, how action has impact and can make us go back to winters. The name ICE stands both for ice and for “In Case of Emergency”.
