Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar


"Here we have one of the greatest living composers working in the full inspiration of his mature style, performed and recorded with world-class passion and intensity. It really doesn't get any better."
( Artistic Quality 10 / Sound Quality 10)

Einojuhani Rautavaara is recognized as one of the most notable Finnish composers after Jean Sibelius. His recordings on Ondine have been bestsellers and garnered numerous awards (including a 1997 Grammy nomination for Angel of Light).

This CD features the mystical composer's latest orchestral works, two poignant testimonies of a mature artistic, spiritual and human personality. The uplifting orchestral Before the Icons (2005) is based on the earlier piano cycle Icons (1955; ODE 710-2) and therefore spans over Rautavaara's entire career. The work drew its inspiration from a book of Orthodox icons. Rautavaara wrote A Tapestry of Life in 2007 after an almost miraculous recovery from an acute illness. "Few contemporary composers are as skilled (...) in using tonality without compromise," wrote the New Zealand Herald, upon its premiere performance.

Leif Segerstam and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra build on their long-time pedigrees of performing their compatriot's music.
