Lotta Wennäkoski: Hele for chamber ensemble


Hele (2018) was written for the musicians of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. It is set up for an ensemble consisting of woodwind quintet, trumpet, percussion and string quintet. Wennäkoski tells about the process: “A composer works with sounds and time, but also with emotions and images. When starting a new score I usually try to find an ‘overall idea’ which can be anything from an atmosphere to a phenomenon of any kind. Hele is Finnish for a grace note – thus a very specific expression. It is also very close to a word meaning bright and light as well.”
