Notes & Reviews:

"The performance, one assumes, is definitive. The title role was written for baritone Jorma Hynninen, and he's grippingly eloquent in his long monolog at the start of Act 3 and affecting in his final scene, when he blissfully contemplates passing on the world of the dead. I don't think this proud Finnish opera will turn out to be all that exportable, but it's worth hearing." - Lucano, ARG

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
The performance is consistently good, the mezzo Eeva-Liisa Saarinen excelling as Charlotta. Confidently conducted, keenly played and vividly recorded, Aleksis Kivi is a powerful narrative written with the kind of descriptive facility that Bartók employed for Bluebeard's Castle.
