The title given by the Finnish composer Aulis Sallinen (b. 1935) is somewhat misleading: this is in fact one through-composed work, structured around an alternation between free passages and more tightly-ordered imitative sections, rather than a collection of short works. Sallinen has maintained throughout his prolific career (including several operas and eight symphonies) an essentially tonal harmonic style that makes his work very approachable. This piece was originally composed for solo accordion, which one can hear in some of the unison passages and chord oscillations- there is an excellent performance on accordion on You Tube; here we have Sallinen's own, highly literate transcription, performed for the first time at the St Albans International Organ festival in 2013.
