Lauri Mäntysaari explores the theme "nature" in Chats before Sunrise (2007, rev. 2022). The atmosphere created in this composition is one of early dawn after a long night spent with good friends (and wine, perhaps), a moment where an unseen element lighter than the air seems to hold the still bubbling conversation in its arms and let us feel relieved. Not only does the word “chat” mean a light conversation, but also a family of birds which is particularly known for their habit of making clicking sounds. These chats also find their place in the composition.

Duration: c. 6'
