ERIK BERGMAN has been hailed as the strongest musical personality to have emerged from Finland since Sibelius: a composer who has created a unique world and whose musical language has become ever richer and more personal. Born in 1911, he studied musicology, literature and aesthetics at Helsinki University and composition and piano at the Helsinki Conservatoire (now the Sibelius Academy). Following further study with Heinz Tiessen at the Berlin Hochschule fur Musik, he was awarded his diploma in 1938: `In addition to an impressive technique, he possesses real musical imagination and a powerfully individual voice'. He gave concerts of his own works in 1941 and 1945 but by the end of the decade, realising his language had developed so far from familiar tonality and neo-classicism that it was on the threshold of dodecaphony, he felt himself in need of further guidance and joined Wladimir Vogel's master-class in Ascona. Here, apart from learning orthodox twelve-tone techniques, he had the chance to talk through his compositional problems with someone: outside the Finnish establishment Bergman's breakthrough came in 1953 with one last non- dodecaphonic work, the cantata Rubaiyat, which was the first piece to reveal his fascination with the Orient, and attracted the attention of Sibelius himself.
