I Kumpi g-e2
II Kehtolaulu des1-e2
III Kaipaus a-b2

The three songs on poems of Uuno Kailas were written for the soprano Satu Jaatinen and the pianist Jouni Suntio during years 2007-2008. The third song Kaipaus (Craving) of the cycle was composed as a single piece, but a year later I decided to compose additional two songs: Kumpi (Which one of us?) and Kehtolaulu (Lullaby). The
two first songs are in a really dark and mortal mood, but the third song opens up the horizon to light. As a composer I decided to grab on the subject of death when I still dared to.
