Aho’s second piano concerto is scored for a string orchestra comprising just twenty players. The demanding piano writing is honouring the ‘Beethovenian-Lisztian-Brahmsian’ pianistic tradition. At times the piano part is lean and linear, but the work also contains multi-layered, full-toned piano textures and massive rolling octaves. The concerto requires great artistry on the part of the performer. The 30-minute concerto comprises 3 untitled movements played without a break.

In spring 2006 Kalevi Aho came across the posthumously published collection The Book of Questions (1974) by Pablo Neruda, the Chilean poet and Nobel Prize winner. The collection consists exclusively of questions, many of which are strange or unusual in character: they force the reader to look at things in an entirely new perspective. Aho selected the texts for the 24-minute song cycle (2006) from Neruda’s questions and combined their Finnish translation (by Katja Kallio) into eleven new sets, each containing between two and seven different questions.

The Russian-born Victoria Yagling (1946−2011) had a career as cellist which served as an excellent accompaniment to the composition she began at an early age. At the Moscow Conservatory she was a cello student of Mstislav Rostropovich and Dmitry Kabalevsky for composition. In her wide composition catalogue the three cello concertos are her main works. Her expressive, romantically orientated style is Russian in spirit and has grown out of the soil provided by Prokofiev and Shostakovich. Suite for cello and string orchestra (ca. 15 min) was composed in 1967. It consists of four movements.

AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME FOR VIOLIN AND PIANO!
In 1929 Sibelius sent some small pieces to the New York publisher Carl Fischer for consideration. Included among these was the Suite for Violin and String Orchestra which represents the culmination point in a series of
works written for violin and orchestra (starting with the serenades op. 69 and continued with the Six Humoresques opp. 87 & 89). Together these works bear witness to the composer’s deep insight into the instrumental possibilities of the violin uniting with the orchestral writing of a mature and experienced symphonist.

Uuno Klami (1900-1961) was an acclaimed Finnish orchestral composer whose works in other genres also deserve to be known. Valses lentes et amoureuses consists of two waltzes and dates from 1932. It is one of the most graceful pieces of salon music ever composed by Uuno Klami. The first waltz, Con passione, begins in subtly sensual, veiled, passionate mood, like an invitation to a dance. The second movement begins with a languorously erotic and chromatic introduction leading to a livelier Wienerlied in a G-major landscape.
