Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
Madetoja was regarded to be one of the most important Finnish composers in the generation after Sibelius... Madetoja's symphonies can be described as of a late Romantic temperament, full of interesting rhythmic diversity, colorfully orchestrated, concisely structured and imbued with Scandinavian folk elements. They also tend toward a dark, somber atmosphere.... read more ...

  • This recording completes Ondine's cycle of all the three Madetoja symphonies. The first, the Symphony No. 2, was released in January 2013.
  • A contemporary of Jean Sibelius, Leevi Madetoja's work reveals a merging of Ostrobothnia folk songs influences, French elegance and an elegiac nature.
  • John Storoerds has been Chief Conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of BBC Philharmonic Orchestra since 2012.

Clearly Storgsrds is a maestro to watch...Storgsrds' scruff-of-the-neck readings should win new friends for composer and conductor alike.
