Notes & Reviews:

Appearing for the first time on BIS, the acclaimed violinist Elina Vahala has a wide-ranging career, both geographically and in terms of repertoire. She made her debut at the age of 12, performing as a soloist with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra, which lends her spirited support on the present disc, and also performs the orchestral piece Leika.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2013
Kuusisto's own Concerto (2011) is a colourful and dramatic score...The finale's rhythmic drive and alternating lyricism are immensely appealing...Excellent performances and sound.

Notes & Reviews:
