Ilmari Mäenpää

Ilmari is an interesting splash of colour in modern Finnish music. He manages to sound surprisingly Anglo-Saxon amidst all the music which pours content from Slavic agony of life. String Quartet 1reminds one of Steve Reich, Michael Nyman and Philip Glass. Combining this style with minimalism represents the ultimate foe for many, but I guess modern music can be something else than angst and advanced mathematics.
