Notes & Reviews:

"10 full-fledged concertos, one important tone poem masquerading as one, and one spare piece for harp and orchestra are loaded into a convenient set that comprises the complete concertos to date by this superb Finnish composer - an excellent introduction to his music. The works, in generally excellent performances, were written from 1968 to 2001, revealing a career filled with consistent musicality and courage - a model of what could have happened if there were more composers of Rautavaara's taste and good sense after the warAll told, this is an important and useful release." - American Record Guide
