Notes & Reviews:

"...Angels and Visitations (1978) was the first in Rautavaara's Angel Series...Musically, the work enters on cymbal sea-spray backed by quietly curling string figurations. Contrasts abound, from the cold purity of the string writing (8'00", or thereabouts - echoes of Sibelius's Sixth) to disruptive interjections and rhythmic computations reminiscent of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring...I cannot recommend it too highly." -RC, Editor's Choice, Gramophone

Penguin Guide
Rautavaara's wholly original Violin Concerto is hauntingly accessible and grips the listener completely...Segerstam provides a shimmering backing and directs a committed and persuasively spontaneous orchestral response throughout all three works.
