Talvi was commissioned by Tom Kerstens, who gave the first performance at the 1998 International Guitar Festival in Bath.
"Talvi, which is the Finnish word for Winter, was the name of a light sculpture exhibition that I saw at the Barbican Centre whilst writing the piece.
The fluid and sometimes blurred images of some of the installations and the constant state of flux within the space as a whole seemed to perfectly mirror the type of musical material I was writing for Tom's solo guitar piece." - Philip Cashian
