Kolme laulau ikävästä : (Three songs of longing) / Sandra Miliken ; text by Kirsi Reinikka.
by Sandra Milliken (2002)
Kolme laulua ikävästä is an anthology of three songs, the texts for which were written by Kirsi Reinikka, a talented Finnish artist, photo journalist and writer who, along with her family, now lives in Brisbane. She was my first Finnish language teacher when I began my studies here in Australia. The overall feeling behind all the texts is one of sadness and longing.
In the first, I have played on the alternation of major/minor tonality to give an unstable, questioning sense. In the second, at times the harmonies are stark without the satisfaction of musical resolution. In the third, there are two ideas: the single/unison tone (the becoming of one, melded together by pitch and rhythm but speaking with an individual timbre) and harmony (two separate/independent entities that forever move in either consonance or dissonance as the creator chooses).
