EINOJUHANI RAUTAVAARA [1928-2016]: CANTUS ARCTICUS, concerto for birds and orchestra

Συναρπαστικό ορχηστρικό έργο του Einojuhani Rautavaara. Ξεκινώντας από νεοκλασικιστικές αναζητήσεις, ο Φιλανδός συνθέτης θα πειραματιστεί στη συνέχεια με το δωδεκάφθογγο, για να περάσει τελικά σε ένα είδος νεορομαντικής τεχνοτροπίας μυστικιστικών αποχρώσεων – σ’ αυτήν ανήκει το έργο που ακούμε. Ο Mikko Franck διευθύνει την Φιλαρμονική Ορχήστρα του Radio France

Fascinating orchestral work by Einojuhani Rautavaara. Starting with neo-classical explorations, the Finnish composer will then experiment with the twelve-tone system, to finally end up with a kind of neo-romantic style of mystical hues – this work we are hearing belongs to that era. Mikko Franck directs the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra.

    Gorgeous!!! I really enjoy listening to the longer pieces you post. I can do things while I listen.
    Happy Holidays, Oannes!

      That’s cool, cause I ‘m more of a fan of “music” myself, than of “songs”. And I intent to put more jazz and classical stuff from now on.
      Thanks a lot, and happy holidays to you too!

        So,Toronto is going nuts for this pianist, Chilly Gonzales. He once broke the world’s record for the longest solo concert (27 hours).
        I only just heard of him yesterday.
        Have you heard of him?

          He ‘s really good. I ‘m gonna put stuff of his in the near future.
