Z ES S ES SE G LI AS,
winner of the 1st Rautavaara Competition in 2012, says:
Working with the Helsinki Chamber Choir was beyond any expectations
a composer might have when taking part in a competition. The process
was a constant back-and-forth stream of feedback at the end of which I
got a highly professional performance.
Since winning the Rautavaara Competition, Zesses Seglias has been commissioned by Klangforum Wien and the Bregenzer Festspiele.

Founder and Artistic Director: Nils Schweckendiek


Organised by
the Helsinki Chamber Choir and
the Viitasaari Time of Music Festival,
in association with Tenso Network Europe.
