Notes & Reviews:

This release features major works of Finnish composer Joonas Kokkonen (1921-1996) – the dominating figure in post-war Finnish music after the death of Jean Sibelius in 1957. Kokkonen linked himself to the symphonic tradition of Brahms and Sibelius. The featured works were written between 1967 and 1971 during the composer's late "neo-Romantic" period of free tonality. 'The Cello Concerto', with its profound central 'Adagio' movement, is a gem in Finnish concerto literature and probably the most-performed cello concerto by any Finnish composer. It is also Kokkonen’s only concerto. This recording features Marko Ylonen as soloist, who specializes in contemporary repertoire.
