Notes & Reviews:

The early compositions of the internationally renowned Finnish composers, Einojuhani Rautavaara, draw on the Nordic classicism of Sibelius and Nielsen, as well as the influences of Bartok, Shostakovich and folk music. Although, during the 1960s, Rautavaara experimented with avant-garde compositional techniques, the 'First Piano Concerto' marked another significant turning point as the composer sought, in his own words, to evoke 'the entire rich grandeur of the instrument'.
