Esa Pietilä’s The Wind Wants examines various kinds of wind: "A balmy summer breeze suddenly gives way to an autumn gale that blows with all its might, whips round corners, forms flurries and howls in the treetops", describes the composer. The 16-minute work includes improvisational passages.
The title Fata morgana (2019) refers to a special weather condition which creates illusory effect of mirage-like fairy castle-like monuments in the horizon of the sea. The 6-minute piece brings forth the frightening bass sonority on double manual, full size harpsichord and the brightness on the treble and makes a dialogue out of them.
