A profusion of contemporary Finnish music! And that’s not all, for the concert is also a rare chance to hear a microtonal French horn. Thanks to its special construction with a longer tuning tube, the microtonal French horn can play the quarter-tone scales required for Tomi Räisänen’s Regula. But who or what are the Little Creatures, and why do they end up at the Devil’s Gate?
