Kalamäng (pronounced kuh-luh-MANG) means “fish game” in Estonian. The title reflects the music in multiple ways. “Kala” (fish) gives the image of fast movements and fluidity, and sounds like “color,” signifying the melodic idea of the piece. And hopefully the music will sound as much fun as it is to say the title!
