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.

Victoria Yagling (1946−2011) made her career as a cellist which served as an excellent accompaniment to composing which she began at an early age. In her extensive catalogue the three cello concertos are the main works. Her expressive, romantically orientated style is Russian in spirit and has grown out of the soil provided by Prokofiev and Shostakovich. The first concerto was composed in 1975 and the second one (1983−84) is dedicated to Rostropovich.
