Sunrise Serenade

Does anyone know what happened to all the pages on Facebook (most of which were auto-generated from Wikipedia) about composers? I am sure that I liked a page for Aulis Sallinen at some point years ago on Facebook. Now there seems to be nothing there.

I guess we’ll just have to use blogs to express our opinions about music from now on.

Scores on Demand has a version of the sheet music for this piece, “Sunrise Serenade,” that you can view online.

I purchased quite a few Naxos CDs – I think including his “Complete Works for String Orchestra” – when I lived in Romania. These CDs were even less expensive there than their very affordable price in the UK or US.

    This isn’t really on topic, but the new Star Wars Trailer is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0CbN8sfihY

    It looks amazing!

      The new Dan Brown book is out too! It’s about the contemporary atheist movement.

    I like Aulis Sallinen too. The Estonian composer Lepo Sumera is also good. The Facebook pages for my favourite classical and soundtrack composers still exist, but I can’t find one for Sallinen. My own automatically generated Facebook page (Scott G Brown), which has no evident purpose, presently describes me as a place or local business. At least it doesn’t give a map.

      Lepo Sumera is another good recommendation! I had thought that it was the auto-generated Facebook pages that had vanished, but you said yours is still there. I can’t seem to find it though – please do send a link on Facebook, so I can like it!

        It appears that some of these auto-generated Facebook pages no longer show up if you type just the name of the person in a Facebook search, but if you type “people who like” followed by the person’s name, you can see a list of people who have “liked” that page, and each person in the list will have a link to that page beside the word “likes.” I was able to find the Aulis Sallinen page that way, and you are listed among the people who show up. My own page can be found that way too.

          Thanks – I was just able to like you on Facebook that way!
