Neljä romanssia oopperasta Rasputin (for mixed choir)
According to Rautavaara it was a pity to leave the melancholy, moonlit songs of his opera Rasputin to languish within the confines of the opera. He therefore arranged the set of "unabashedly sentimental and thoroughly melodic" pieces, first for male choir, and in 2012 for mixed choir.

for solo cello
FIRST PUBLICATION
A work that was probably never performed in public during Sibelius's lifetime. It dates from 1887 when Sibelius was 21 years, and the music owes much to Bach in terms of its style, although the theme on which the variations are based has a certain Finnish-Nordic flavour. It was refound and performed in 1995 and also recorded on the BIS label.
