Merikanto, Oskar - Elämälle. Songs by Oskar Merikanto - Hynninen, Jorma (baritone)



Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Jorma Hynninen is one of the most celebrated Finnish vocal artists of all time. This new disc contains the legendary baritone’s very personal account of songs by the compatriot Oskar Merikanto (1868–1924), which are truly worth a discovery! Many of the 25 songs remain to this day among the all-time favourite Finnish songs of any genre (such as the title song of this disc, Elämälle – ‘To life’).

Oskar Merikanto was equally popular among the large Finnish audience of his time as was Jean Sibelius. He was the co-founder of what would become the Finnish National Opera and composed major contributions to the song and opera genre of the late romantic era in Finland. A real master of melody who incorporated elements of folk music into his works, Oskar Merikanto rightfully provokes comparisons with composers of such genius as Schubert and Mahler as a song writer.

Jorma Hynninen has contributed not only to a renewal in the art of interpreting solo songs but also to the creation of a number of new contemporary operas by Rautavaara and Sallinen, to name but two composers. His greatest musical love though has always been Lied, a genre on which he successfully concentrates on this new recording. His dark, dramatic and dynamic voice fits the music ideally. Pianist Ilkka Paananen has appeared numerous times together with Jorma Hynninen and is an equally appreciated Lied partner of Elina Garanca, Dilbèr, Matti Salminen and Gabriel Suovanen.

The CD booklet includes liner notes and the song lyrics in the original Finnish and in English translation.
