Wish for cello (2020)

The impulse for this work came just before Christmas from a 9 year old girl whose wish from Santa was that the world would not be finished too soon. Her wish hit me deeply. The young generation is suffering from the choices we have made but hope we can still change the direction. This work expresses my feelings after the wish, the alarming state of the world but also the honest believe in a child that we all can make a difference.

Wish is dedicated to fantastic Eeva Rysä.
