This release includes the world première recording of the full orchestral score written by Armas Järnefelt’s (1869–1958) to Mauritz Stiller’s silent film Song of the Crimson Flower (1919) performed by Gävle Symphony Orchestra under Jaakko Kuusisto.

Armas Järnefelt – today largely known in music literature only as Sibelius’ brother-in-law – became one of the most remarkable Finnish orchestral composers during the 1890s.

In 1919, Finnish-born film director Mauritz Stiller approached Armas Järnefelt and commissioned him to write an orchestral score for his silent film ‘Song of the Scarlet Flower’ (Sången om den eldröda blomman), based on a novel by Finnish author Johannes Linnankoski. The film was a huge hit and went on to be screened in more than 40 countries in addition to Sweden. It was also the first ever Nordic feature-length film to have a full-length original score written for it.

Andrejs Selickis (b. 1960) is a singular, idiosyncratic phenomenon among Latvian composers. As with Arvo Pärt, Selickis’ work is inseparably linked to his faith, which has found a deep and unique expression in his distinct style. Iconic symbolism, sacred archetypes and the ecstatic experience of God’s presence are the keys to his music. This new recording by the Latvian Radio Choir includes choral works by Selickis. Conductor Sigvards Klava has enjoyed friendship and artistic collaboration with the giving premieres to several of his most important vocal works.

Sigvards Klava is a professor at the Jazeps Vitols Latvian Academy of Music. Klava is a multiple winner of the Latvian Great Music Award.

Best known for his gigantic orchestral masterpieces Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) took equal pleasure in writing smaller miniatures. In fact, Brahms wrote a substantial number of pieces for vocal quartet and piano; this ensemble was for him a vehicle for expressing warmth and positive emotions, and as such this genre remains one of the most beloved in his output. This new recording by the prestigious Latvian Radio Choir under Sigvards Klava features a selection from his Opp. 52, 64, 65 and 92, including some of his famous Liebeslieder-Walzer.

Award-winning Latvian Radio Choir is among the most prestigious chamber choirs in Europe. The choir’s previous releases on Ondine have been highly successful. The recording of Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil (ODE 1206-5) was chosen as the Record of the Month, Editor’s Choice and received a nomination in the Gramophone Awards in 2013. Similarly, their recent release of choral works by Valentin Silvestrov (ODE 1266-5) received Gramophone Editor’s Choice.

"...The title work, to English-language poems by Joseph Brodsky, may be the most powerful; sample its titular first movement (track 11) with its soaring soprano lines for a taste of Grigorjeva's personal adaptation of a Pärt influence. The Lament for recorder, originally recorded for flute, but extremely nifty in this version that makes use of the recorder's distinctive attack, is also unusual. The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and Hillier's Theatre of Voices are in fine precise form, and they are ably backed by Ondine's engineering team, working in Tallinn's sonically impressive Niguliste Church. A fine excursion through new choral trends in Eastern Europe."

"This new album from the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir reinforces their position as one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles. Paul Hillier directs them through a deeply satisfying survey of music by the Ukrainian-born Estonian composer Galina Grigorjeva (b1962). Stylistically, she follows in the long shadow of Rachmaninov, bracing an essential serenity with the subtlest of richer harmonic tints, while stretching her singers both emotionally as well as in terms of their tessitura (oh, those basses!). She is the mistress of cadential suspense, a modernist who respects the past..."

Finnish Baroque Orchestra's second release of Christoph Graupner's (1683-1760) music continues to reveal delightful masterpieces by the Baroque master, who during his lifetime was even more well-known than his colleague Johann Sebastian Bach. After the acclaimed release of Graupner's orchestral works (ODE 1220-2; The Finnish broadcasting company YLE Record of the Year 2013), this new album focuses on some of the chamber works by Graupner - the Trio Sonatas.

Graupner was extremely productive as a composer, with a catalogue of over 2'000 works varying from orchestral works to cantatas, concertos and chamber music. He also possessed a unique personal style of writing music and often favoured certain rarer instruments in his works. Among these are the viola d'amore as well as the chalumeau, both instruments being heard also on this disc.

From his contemporaries Graupner's music stands out with its exceptional command of melody and harmony.

Einojuhani Rautavaara (1928–2016) would have turned 90 October 9th, 2018. During his long career as a composer spanning seven decades from the late 1940s until his very last days, the composer created a wide list of works in various music genres, including 8 symphonies, several concertos and operas as well as a large amount of vocal and chamber music – majority of them have been recorded by Ondine. The recordings released by the label played a key role in bringing the composer to international attention during the 1990s. This anniversary release includes a re-issue of his 8th Symphony, written for the centenary of the Philadelphia Orchestra, his Harp Concerto, written for the Minnesota Orchestra, as well as a sampler of selected moments from Ondine’s extensive Rautavaara discography.

With The Snow Queen, the Finnish National Ballet scored a hit. This success was due not only to Andersen's wonderful story and its brilliant staging but also to the music of composer Tuomas Kantelinen. He says he wanted "to write music that is melodic, beautiful and accessible, as its principal function is to put viewers of all ages into a cheerful Christmas mood. It is a deliberate nod towards the tradition of Christmas ballets for the whole family, such as Nutcracker.

The virtuoso sets of Etudes and Preludes cover a wide range of late-Romantic expressions, from heroic to religious, ecstatic to melancholic. The Sonata No. 10 is regarded as one of Scriabin's greatest works. The collection culminates with the pianistic tour-de-force of Vers la flamme, an astonishing piece famously championed by the late Vladimir Horowitz.

Image Violin Concerto / Jubilees / Souvenir
Ondine continues its collaboration with Magnus Lindberg by presenting the world première recordings of his Violin Concerto, and the chamber orchestra works Jubilees and Souvenir.

Magnus Lindberg's music is always instrumentally idiomatic and powerful. The soloist part in the Violin Concerto is demanding, yet gratifying, and rich. Jubilees is an adaption of earlier piano miniatures and Lindberg made them resemble the original as closely as possible, yet illustrating the dimensions of instrumental thinking and transforming them into an idiomatic large chamber ensemble texture. Premiered in New York in 2010 Souvenir, a kind of homage to Gérard Grisey and Franco Donatoni, ranges musically from chamber-music lucidity to an almost Romantic orchestral opulence.

Internationally renowned violinist Pekka Kuusisto is recognised for his fresh approach to the repertoire and for being a strong advocate of new music. On this recording he appears as soloist and director of the Tapiola Sinfonietta, an orchestra with which he works together on a frequent basis.

Jukka Tiensuu is regarded as one of the most fascinating Finnish living composer along with Einojuhani Rautavaara, Kaija Saariaho, and Magnus Lindberg. His first clarinet concerto Puro, written for Kari Kriikku in 1989, has since known a phenomenal success, with fifty acclaimed performances around the globe.

Kari Kriikku, the muse to a number of Finland's high profile composers, has previously made acclaimed recordings of clarinet concertos by Magnus Lindberg (2006 BBC Music Magazine Award & Classic FM Gramophone Award; ODE 1038-2), Kimmo Hakola (ODE 1063-2), and Jouni Kaipainen, in addition to Jukka Tiensuu's Puro (ODE 778-2). Upon the world premiere of Missa in Glasgow on May 4, 2007, The Scotsman wrote, "Kari Kriikku was the solitary star. His ability to get effects out of his instrument was clearly the inspiration behind Tiensuu's concerto."
