Notes & Reviews:

"Music of Tranquil Beauty" indeed! This lovely album of predominately little-known pieces from Finland, Norway and Russia is a charmer. This tranquil and beautiful music can offer special moments to any listener. Interestingly, the album was initially prepared for the Finnish Board of Tourism to evoke an image of the tranquility of northern latitudes. The music is absolute peace. Ondine is offering it at a special price.
