Composer of October – E. Rautavaara

Einohujani Rautavaara was born in October 1928. The Finnish composer wrote a prolific repertory and musical works, for instance:

  • symphonies;
  • operas;
  • concertos and vocal;
  • chamber music work.

His compositional style varies, often using 12 tone techniques.

One of his amazing pieces is Sonata for flute and guitar, which was written in 1975. Each part has its own character, underlined also by the use of different flutes. It is a piece rich in a variety of expressions, pathos and colours. We hope you will enjoy the piece as much as we do.
