Kristo Matson:
“For many, creating and understanding music is mysterious, something that can be experienced but not explicated. I’m not an exception: I like to listen, contemplate and write. Less I’ve accustomed to write thoughts down.

I heard Finlandia for the first time in gymnasium while I was writing treatise about Jean Sibelius. That experience was fantastic! I listened it again and again until I caught myself thinking: how the music is created? Back then I couldn’t answer, but I decided to take a closer look.

During the years I’ve been asking that question from myself a lot, unbeknownst if it can be answered at all. Perhaps music is like an elusive miracle, happiness that can be felt and that only few are able to describe and expound.”
