Stellar Finnish violin, cello concertos

Post by Rach3 » Wed Oct 03, 2018 4:05 pm

I believe my first hearings today ; very impressive, will need re-hearings:

Pēteris Vasks (b.1946)
Distant Light ( Violin Concerto )
Vadim Gluzman (Violin), Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Hannu Lintu (Conductor)

Einojuhani Rautavaara (1928-2016)
Cello Concerto No. 1, Op 41
Raimo Sariola (Cello), Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Pertti Pekkanen (Conductor)

Rautavaara has another cello concerto, a sonata for solo cello, and 2 sonatas for cello and piano. Vasks has 2 other concerto-type works for violin and orchestra, and a violin/piano work.Anyone heard any of these others , care to comment, recommend ? TIA.

I have recordings of Rautavaara's Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 5 , his Violin Concerto, and some of his solo piano music, all of which I enjoy greatly. Have no recordings of Vasks, who seems equally prolific.
