Endangered was composed for the compulsory 2nd round program of the international  Ilmari Hannikainen piano chamber music competition  2023. The competition will take place on 2–9 March 2023 in Jyväskylä. 

I used two kind of material freely as an impulse for the piece:: motifs from Hannikainen´s Sairas lintu (L'oiseau malade - The Sick Bird) and the sounds of birds classified as highly endangered in Finland. 

Thanks to my violin teacher Riikka Alakärppä. <3
