Strange Dreams composed by Jukka Viitasaari. For concert band. Grade 5. Score and set of parts. Published by TRN Music Publisher (TU.CBSTR1).

Strange Dreams was commissioned by the Rauma Wind Band for their 85th Anniversary (2006), and it won the 2nd prize at Concours international de composition pour orchestre d'harmonie Lambersart - France 2006. The brass sextet version won the 2nd prize at the Humboldt State University (California) Brass Chamber Music Workshop composition contest in 2007. Strange Dreams is based on the composer's recurring and one-off dreams.

Movement 1 - "House on the Hill" haunts the composer quite regularly: an empty house in which the Serpent already awaits the artists

Movement 2 - "Dream on!" is, sadly a one time romantic dream (1998) about Jukka Viitasaari and Uma Thurman

Movement 3 - "Thunder in the East" is inpspired by the stories told by the late Lauri "Grandpa" Viitasaari, a veteran of two wars with the Soviet Union.
