Uuno Klami

Finnish composer Uuno Klami (1900-1961). He was born in Virolahti. Many of his works are related to the Kalevala. He was also influenced by French music, in particularly by Maurice Ravel and the group Les Six. Klami studied music in Helsinki and later in Paris and Vienna. His main works include the Kalevala Suite and the ballet Whirls. The oratory Psalmus (1936) has a unique place in Finnish sacred music. Klami also experimented with the symphonic form in his two Symphonies and Sinfonie enfantine, and the concerto form in his two Piano Concertos (No. 1 'Une nuît à la Montmartre') and the Violin Concerto. Being a master of miniature orchestral works, the orchestral suite Sea Pictures should also be regarded as one of his greatest achievements. The energetic Karelian Rhapsody was the first Finnish orchestral work to be published in Finland, and a long-time favourite in radio concert programs.
