About the site
Leevi Madetoja was a major Finnish composer of orchestral, choral and vocal music.
By nature Madetoja was a National Romantic composer, but equally pronounced in his music was a classical streak aiming at balance, clarity, refinement of expression and technical polish.
He drew on a combination of the Finnish folk melody and the new French music he heard in Paris at the beginning of the century.
The result is a style that was entirely his own.
