Wish for cello


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 touched me deeply. The young generation is suffering from the choices the generations before them have made but they hope that can still change the direction. This work expresses my feelings after the wish, the alarming state of the world but also the honest belief in a child that we all can make a difference.

Wish is dedicated to my two daughters and to a fantastic cellist Eeva Rysä.
