Programme Note
Aulis Sallinen A Solemn Overture (King Lear) (1997),
The Ouverture is based on four thematic motives, of which the three first are harmonically related. Each theme is repeated twice during the composition. The thematic flow is interrupted at times by a fanfare-like and also a thick harmonic element.
