Kozlova-Johannes, Tatjana: Lighting the Fire 



Basic information



  • Program notes: 

    “Lighting the Fire” is written in 2015 for Estonian Nation Symphony Orchestra and was premiered at the festival “Estonian Music Days”. The piece is inspired by Clarissa Pinkola Estés’s book “Women Who Run With The Wolves”, story of Vasilisa the Wise.

    “Vasilisa came through the forest carrying the skull, with the blazing from its ear, eye, nose, and mouth holes. Vasilisa now carries the blaze of knowing: she has those fierce sences. She can hear, see, smell and taste things out, and she has her Self”
    Clarissa Pinkola Estés
