True and False Unicorn

American poet James Broughton’s unicorn is the personification of the artist, and Rautavaara follows the mythical animal on a musical journey of self-discovery in which the allusions of the text are allied with a wealth of musical references, creating, in the composer’s words, a “tapestry of voices”.

We have several good orchestras in our country, but only because composers know the Finnish Radio Chamber Choir do they not hesitate to write radical, unusual, rhythmically and tonally demanding thoughts and innovations also in choral music.
