Mikko Heiniö's Sextet (for baritone, flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano) is contemporary music that captures the listeners. The baritone soloist is allowed to shine in the resonant register. Tommi Hakala would have liked to sing this at the Cardiff Singer of the World competition, but the orchestra refused to play chamber music. As Jukka Isopuro wrote: Heiniö has done a fine job solving the problem of writing modern music that sings. There are no mindless interval leaps, and the baritone. The diatonic-seeming melodic modules are aurally titillating, and there are no heavy chromatic bottlenecks to obstruct the flow. The light, clear sound of this seven-movement work performed without a break weaves in a sense of disappointed, wounded love that is detached and insensible. The coltish scherzo kicks up ironic and comic tones, even down to falsetto.
