Erkki Melartin (1875-1937) was a Finnish composer who has been described as a 'lyric melodist'. Melartin's broad oeuvre extends from national romantism to impressionism, expressionism and even atonality.
The Helsinki Chamber Choir will perform a concert of Erkki Melartin's choral pieces on October 2nd in Paavali Church, Helsinki.
In the concert we will hear a range of Melartin's different compositions for both mixed and male choir - for example art songs in Finnish and Swedish, hymns and patriotic music.
Melartin skillfully adapts his rich harmonic language to different genres' expressive demands.
