Notes & Reviews:

Finnish composer Tauno Marttinen's unusually wide and varied musical output can be divided into certain stylistic periods. The works on this recording come from what has been retrospectively christened Marttinen's period of naturemysticism. Characteristic of this period was the use of colorful instrumentation perhaps influenced by Finnish art.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Several of the works are frankly atmospheric and dominated by glissandos, tremolos, and tone clusters (first movement of the Suite and the 1977 Gleams). Jouni Somero captures the shifting moods of this music very well, and the sonics are very good.
