Rautavaara Modificata Incantations Percussion Concerto Philharmonic Orchestra John Storgards Ondine

EINOJUHANI RAUTAVAARA (b. 1928)

Cello Concerto No. 2 “Towards the Horizon” (2008–2009)

Modificata (1957/2003)

Percussion Concerto “Incantations” (2008)

World Première Recordings

Truls Mørk (cello), Colin Currie (percussion),

Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, John Storgårds

This new recording couples Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara’s latest concerto works with an orchestral piece from his early Modernist period (Modificata; 1957/2003)

The virtuoso Percussion Concerto Incantations (2008) features the Scottish percussion soloist Colin Currie, who is the dedicatee and première performer of this work. Currie wrote himself the virtuoso cadenza to the final movement.

Rautavaara’s Second Cello Concerto Towards the Horizon (2009) was written for cellist Truls Mørk and plays continuously in one 20-minute movement. Reviewing the premiere the Star Tribune noted that the composer “acknowledges a ‘taste for eternity’ and a vain of mysticsm runs through his work.”

Einojuhani Rautavaara is recognized as one of the most notable Finnish composers after Jean Sibelius. His recordings on Ondine have been bestsellers and garnered numerous awards(including a recent GRAMMY nomination for his opera Kaivos).

Under their chief conductor John Storgårds, the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra builds on long-time pedigrees of performing their compatriot’s music.
