Abstract

The creative energy which has emerged from Finland over the past 25 years or so has generated a great deal of interest, not just in terms of scholarship but amongst the concert-going public at large. Magnus Lindberg is a leading, internationally-renowned figure in contemporary music and his preoccupation with matters of musical timescale – and its relationship to his native homeland – forms the basis of this article. An analytical case study of his recent orchestral work Era gives a focus to more wide-ranging discussions of time, space, motion and continuity, while helping us to understand the broad appeal of this undoubtedly modern music to a refreshingly wide-ranging audience.
