Performer Conductors Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • Finnish composer Kalevi Aho has been an important musical presence in Finland since the late 1960's.
  • Mr. Aho composed Minea at the behest of conductor and noted Beethoven interpreter Osmo Vanska, who conducts the work herein.
  • Mr. Aho's fifteenth and latest symphony, heard here,utilizes an large array of western and non-western percussion instruments
  • The Lahti Symphony Orchestra has performed and recorded a large number of the composer's works.

MusicWeb International, 9th April 2014
I have only praise for the Lahti Symphony Orchestra displaying an unfailing instinct for Aho's turbulent sound-world of absorbing textures and enticing rhythms. Each conductor seems impeccably prepared and maintains a firm grip, securing alert and involving performances.
