Opaasilasi (Opal glass)

Violin / Viola
Duration 7’
Composed in 2008 (Commissioned by Limingan Musiikkiviikot / Johanna and Osmo Leponiemi – premiered June 2008 in Liminka)

 

This piece was commissioned by Johanna and Osmo Leponiemi for the celebration of their wedding anniversary. The title tells of an inseparable combination of two different kinds of glass. At times their differences create a tensioned but rich dialogue. Several different string playing techniques have been utilized to create the transparence, play of light and glass-like quality of the music.
