Parting

Erotessa

Details

The romantic poem “Erotessa” (eng. Parting), by the Finnish National Poet Eino Leino (1878–1926), inspired composer Kimmo Kuitunen 15 years ago to make a contemporary music composition for choir. One day, visual artist Seppo Renvall got to hear an instrumental version of this piece of music called "LeinoMeetsOrc". He started to visualize this wordless musical journey into a short film. In this visual, impressionistic poem the urban longing for nature, conflict and hypnotic feeling of the original piece can be found.
