Notes & Reviews:

The music of Finnish composer Kai Nieminen does not conform to any "isms". He remarks: "I feel like I am a painter in music, who having seen or experienced something attempts to give that something a shape in music." The flute concerto 'Palomar' was written for Patrick Gallois, soloist and conductor on this disc. The clarinet concerto 'Through Shadows I Can Hear Ancient Voices' was inspired by the Italian Antonio Tabucchi's novel 'Notturno indiano'. In 'Vicoli in ombra' we meander through the misty alleys of Rome, encountering strangers.
