Sea Scenery for String Quartet by L. Hamalainen
Short quartet for middle- level string quartets in three parts.
The music of Sea Scenery has been inspired by the vast Baltic Sea between Finland and Sweden, the foggy sea at sunrise by Seurasaari Island in Finland and the waters around eastern Helsinki. The music has been premiered by the Allegros String Quartet in the Suomenlinna Church (Kirkko Soikoon Festival 2004) and the Chamber Orchestra of The Northwestern Music Institute of Helsinki (2010).
The music can be performed by a traditional string quartet or a chamber orchestra (without double- bass).
