RainPosted: January 4, 2012
I. Summer (Jouni Stenroos)
Written in 2010 for James Day, four movements, ca. 10 minutes.
“Rain” was where I decided to start focusing on music that’s there for me to write, rather than on music that’s slightly out of reach. This small shift in attitude has made composing easier and more enjoyable for me. I tried to write direct and evocative music here, and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. It’s my most often performed solo piece.
