Outi Tarkiainen: Beaivi: Chamber Ensemble

Study Score | Chamber Ensemble
Composer Outi Tarkiainen
Publisher Edition Wilhelm Hansen
Instrumentation Flute, Cello, Guitar and Piano Chamber

Beaivi is inspired by the Sami poet Nils-Aslak Valkeapää's poem 'When that time approaches', where the first encounter with light after the lengthy polar night is described with exceptional significance. The word beaivi comes from the northern Sami language meaning sun or day. The play of light - its dawn, a brief shimmering before darkening again - are characterized throughout the textures and timbres of the piece. Beaivi is dedicated to the Danish chamber music ensemble Lydenskab, who also commissioned the work.

'When that time approaches
I notice how frequently I ski
higher than necessary
and when I finally see
the peaks turn red
I am not ashamed to admit
that I go to a high place
in order to see the sun'

-Nils-Aslak Valkeapää
English translation by Ralph Salisbury
