Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Seppo Pohjola studied composition in Finland with Olli Koskelin, Paavo Heininen and Erkki Jokinen. His first string quartet brought him to the attention of the musical world. Since then he has composed several operas, three symphonies, a wealth of chamber music and choral works.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Pohjola may be on the verge of becoming a major figure. Stay tuned. There are some very interesting notes by one Jouni Katipanen on the coming-of-age of the composer in the 21st Century and the necessity of fighting the demands of the academic norm. It sounds as if he is a composer himself.
