Pehr Henrik Nordgren

Pehr Henrik Nordgren (19 January 1944 [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll allmusic Biography] ] in Saltvik, island Åland - 25 August 2008 in Veteli) was a Finnish composer.

Life

Pehr Henrik Nordgren received composition lessons starting from 1958 in Helsinki and studied music science at the university from 1962 to 1967, as well as receiving private tuition from Joonas Kokkonen from 1965 to 1969. At the university for art and music in Tokyo he supplemented his composition studies from 1970 to 1973 with Yoshio Hasegawa and became acquainted with traditional Japanese music, which soon became an influence in his works.

1973 he married Shinobu Suzuki in Tokyo, and returned to Finland where he established himself in Kaustinen, a small place in Ostrobottnien, as a freelance composer. Kaustinen is the center of folk music in Finland; folk music festivals take place all summer long with travellers coming from around the world. Thus Nordgren concerned himself now with the music of his country. On the other hand, he intensively began co-operation with the Ostrobottni Chamber Orchestra and its leader Juha Kangas, which led to an abundance of orchestral works.

Nordgren's style proceeds from the twelve tone technique as well as the cluster technology Ligetis, refers however many further elements and can altogether than pluralistisch being designated. Apart from the meeting with the traditional Japanese music (e.g. into the Kwaidan Balladen for piano) and the employment of its instruments into its compositions the Finnish people music with their instruments, particularly the Kantele, plays a large role. In the center of Nordgren's Œuvre are located however the works for strings; whether in concertos, works for string orchestras, string quartets or sonatas.
