Notes & Reviews:

"Without any doubt the most provocatively individualistic Finnish composer born of the several generations between Sibelius and Marttinen/Kokkonen was Aarre Merikanto...Throughout both scores Merikanto's rich orchestrating genius - drawing upon and melding elements from an eclectic mix of Franco-Germanic-Russian sources - is positively breathtaking in a Schreker-like way...Both the performances and the engineering are first class..." -Snook, Fanfare
