The first Helsinki Chamber Orchestra concert of this autumn season takes a fresh look at three fascinating chamber works from the Nordic countries: Edvard Grieg's wistful Andante con moto for piano trio, Amanda Maier-Röntgen's impassioned piano quartet, and Einar Englund's large-scale piano quintet, written following the heat of the Winter War. Although all three composers received recognition during their lifetime, Grieg and Englund wrote a limited number of chamber works and are
more widely known for their orchestral works, whereas Amanda Maier-Röntgen's music has been widely neglected since her passing - until recent years. For all of their differences, these works are united by a certain Nordic lyricism, and the elegiac spirit in the larger works can be explained by the fact that Maier-Röntgen's piano quartet was her last finished work before her untimely death, whereas Englund's piano quintet was heavily influenced by his experiences participating in the Winter War.
