“In the Arctic region, the ice breathes with the seasons, swelling in winter and shrinking in summer,” writes Outi Tarkiainen of Songs of the Ice. “Its age-old movement sings a song of its own: slowly surging, unrelenting and covering all beneath it.” 

György Ligeti was commissioned to write a Horn Concerto by a foundation in Hamburg, which is why it is called the Hamburg Concerto, as in the Bach Brandenburgs. Another masterpiece of concentrated musical thinking is Jean Sibelius’s last Symphony.
