Programme Note

Strings to the Bone is an intense and virtuosic, almost shamanistic piece, where the music moves between large expressive sounds worlds and almost minimalistic movement. I have been very inspired by the sound and intense playing of the Ostrobothnia Chamber Orchestra and although the work does not contain direct references to folk music, the region of the orchestra and also my own relationship with folk music have influenced some of the musical events.
