Madetoja must surely be the only major composer in the history of world music who played the kantele, Finland's national instrument, as his main instrument.
Madetoja was not a wonderchild, but he did have a natural talent and learnt to compose not from his teachers Armas Järnefelt, Erik Furuhjelm and Jean Sibelius but simply by composing, thus managing to acquire the means of writing both choral and orchestral music without any apparent effort.
Whilst Madetoja may be regarded as one of Finland's leading orchestral and opera composers, he may well be claimed the leading choral composer, considering the extent and quality of his output.
