(1885 - 1957)

Kaski, Heino (1885–1957)

Heino Kaski was among those Finnish composers who came after and were largely overshadowed by Sibelius. He studied briefly with the latter, in Germany, and with Selim Palmgren. He died in 1957, the day before the death of Sibelius.

Piano Music
Kaski is chiefly known for his piano miniatures, a reflection of his career as a piano and voice teacher. He tackled more extended forms, including a symphony, and wrote sonatas for violin, for flute and for cello, as well as some 40 part-songs. It is, however, his technically undemanding piano genre pieces that have held more attention, among amateur pianists.
