My Personal Space for baritone saxophone

Solo work is dedicated to Joonatan Rautiola 2018.

For me the baritone saxophone is one of the most expressive instruments. You can find the depth and roughness as well as sensitivity and lyricism in it, During #me too conversations I wanted to embody the need of my own space and appreciating it with my music. Joonatan Rautiola had suggested co-operations last summer when we met at Hiljaisuus festival and I wanted to compose this work for him.
