About

World Premiere Recording: first work for the stage by the Finnish composer Jyrki Linjama, the church opera Die Geburt des Täufers (The Birth of the Baptist).

Church music has gradually become more and more dominant in Jyrki Linjama’s work. He has composed a wealth of chamber, vocal and instrumental works, including several pieces for organ.

Die Geburt des Täufers was premiered in Austria in 2010 when Linjama was the Composer-in-Residence at the Carinthischer Sommer music festival.
