Notes & Reviews:

Born in the island province of Aland but a native of the Ostrobothnian town of Kaustinen since the early 1970s, Pehr Henrik Nordgren studied with Joonas Kokkonen and with Y. Hasegawa in Tokyo. His music explores not only the native folk-music of Finland but also that of Japan. This disc allows listeners to hear a more introspective side of the composer. These works have a more consistently dark tone, and the Concerto is particularly rewarding for its delicate timbres and a striking balance between the orchestral forces and solo instrument.
