Aarre Merikanto: Sestetto per archi (String Sextet)
Aarre Merikanto (1893–1958) composed his string sextet in 1932 for the competition of Library of Congress, Washington. The work was however not accepted because it was sent without the performance material, after which Merikanto cut out many segments. In 1993 Paavo Heininen completed the 22-minute work.
