Chamber piece by the Estonian neoclassicist composer Raimo Kangro for flute, violin and guitar, premiered in 1992 by the ensemble Camerata Tallinn. This recording is from the ensembles 1994 album "Estonian Chamber Music".
The painting used in the middle part of the video is by Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902).
On the composer:
Raimo Kangro's personal style is founded on the neoclassical basis – it stayed relatively constant throughout his whole creative period. The main characteristic of his idiom is an active, changeable, often syncopated rhythm. Melody is angular and development is based on variation or fluid and improvisation-like. Active rhythmic pulse is a unifier for stylistic borrowings from pop, rock, ancient European styles and Estonian folk music. Polyrhythmics and heterophonic orchestral textures in bright timbre colours introduce tension into the music. Instrumental works and operas are central in Kangro's oeuvre.
