Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

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 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, 'Elamalle - '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.
