Notes & Reviews:

Joonas Kokkonen draws a broad range of expressive effects from the piano, recalling such diverse influences as Hindemith, Ravel and Liszt. Throughout, however, he maintains his own unique voice: one that is Romantic, if not daring at times. Throughout he is obviously an advocate of beauty in music. I like this composer very much, and these are most welcome world premiere recordings. Any lover of modern piano music will find this to be interesting and beautiful music.
