Notes & Reviews:

"Jouni Kaipainen (b. 1956) has written many concertos. He has a good feeling for the byplay between a soloist and an orchestra. These two new works, from 2001 and 2002, are strong and extended that blend the contemporary relaxed formal structure with a unifying use of motivic development that tends to satisfy both sides of the fence. The idiom is tonal and melodically satisfying, and the music is outgoing and virtuosic. The young performers play with passion, and the orchestra joins in with atmosphere. This is a fine example of recent music from Finland." -American Record Guide

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
This new disc makes a good introduction to his sound world. The 17-minute opening movement is really a conflation of two spans, a long Andante febbrile introduction which is recalled at the close of the succeeding Allegro conbrio. As if to balance this, the central Largo connects via a cadenza to the brilliant final Allegretto. Esa Tapani and Marko Ylönen are exemplary soloists, playing with plenty of verve. Hannu Lintu and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra accompany expertly and everyone sounds as if they enjoyed themselves.

Gramophone Magazine
Jouni Kaipainen (b1956) first came to notice in the early 1990s... His musical style... is advanced but not aggressive, postmodern tonal with much that is jovial and pleasingly lyrical. Esa Tapani and Marko Ylönen are exemplary soloists, playing with plenty of verve. Hannu Linty and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra accompany expertly and everyone sounds as if they enjoyed themselves. And so did I.
