From the Fennica Gehrman website:
American Finn composer Lara Poe wrote a song cycle co-commissioned by the Lahti and Oulu Symphony Orchestras. This impressive work was premiered in Lahti on 12 October and was a proof of Poe’s exceptional talent. The Onerva Songs for mezzo-soprano and orchestra are based on poems by L. Onerva and the soloist was Virpi Räisänen.
Lara Poe is a young composer whose works are being commissioned at an increasing rate. She has already attracted international attention with her existing orchestral and instrumental works.
