Music of Kaksinen is based in the movement of Pendulum, wandering between two worlds and counting the moments of our lives. Finnish word “kaksinen” could be translated literally as something that has two sides or parts, but if a thing isn’t “kaksinen”, it really wasn’t well done. I wanted to compose something virtuosic for clarinet, but still something that sounds easy and natural. Hidden virtuosity.


Kaksinen is a commission of Lauri Sallinen for his official graduation concert.
