Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This release coincides with the 80th birthday of Ondine's best-selling composer, Einojuhani Rautavaara, on October 9. Ondine has had a long and fruitful association with the Finnish cult composer since the late 1980s, having recorded the premieres of many of his works and garnering many awards along the way, including a Grammy nomination for his 'Angel of Light' (Symphony No. 7). This new recording features his complete works for male choir - one of the most popular genres in this composer's artistic output.

Gramophone Magazine,
So this comprehensive and magnificently sung new collection has the field to itself.

BBC Music Magazine
Especially striking, its tenor line soaring over a quasi-orchestral vocal fabric, is the literary Leaves are Leaves; but finer still are the Four Alexis Kivi Songs (1998-2005), from his opera about Finland's equivalent of Pushkin and Burns, the main solo 'Melancholy' movingly underpinned by YL's awesomely dark, firm basses.
