Ondine sound is always and everywhere transparent but tangible. Rautavaara: Angels and Visitations. Einojuhani Rautavaara is arguably Finland's most popular modern composer because of his approachable, neo-Romantic orchestral music; yet his works' consistently somber tone, gray orchestration, and fairly static pacing make them predictable and tedious.
Noted for exploiting a variety of methods and for writing in both avant-garde and traditionalist styles, Rautavaara is nonetheless most recognizable for his slow harmonic rhythms and overcast colors, and his monochromatic music is barely disturbed by exciting ideas or startling innovations.
When he experiments with aleatoric procedures in Garden of SpacesrevisedRautavaara is careful to score the interchangeable sections blandly so they slip past each other with the least amount of friction. The pseudo-concerto for taped bird calls and orchestra, Cantus Arcticusmoves quite slowly in its glacial counterpoint and progressions; while the score evokes its subject most aptly, it is still a tedious slog through Rautavaara's austere Scandinavian scenes.
Even the Clarinet Concertowhich should be a dynamic showpiece, is dominated by too many stretches of brooding melancholy. Clarinetist Richard Stoltzman and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, under Leif Segerstam, valiantly try to make the work take off, particularly in the Vivace finale; but the few bravura passages in the solo part are not enough to make this weighty vehicle break free of Rautavaara's gravitational pull.
Madetoja: Symphonies Nos. Hi-Res Booklet. Every recording released of Kullervo proves Sibelius' aesthetic judgment was wrong when he forbid performances of the work during his long lifetime. A five-movement symphony-cum-symphonic poem-cum-oratorio-cum-opera, Kullervo may have seemed unwieldy in its time, Sergiu Comissiona - Hommage à Sibelius (CD, but starting with Paavo Berglund's premiere recording inthe work has taken its rightful place in the canon as the progenitor of Sibelius' mature style and as a valid and affecting work in its own right.
By blending the epic-symphonic and the lyric-dramatic elements of the score into a cogent musical whole, Segerstam makes the best case for the work. With the powerful, colorful, and deeply committed playing of the Helsinki Philharmonic, the outer movements have the heft and control of symphonic arguments.
And with the brawny but expressive baritone Tommi Hakala in the title role and the pure but passionate soprano Soile Isokoski as his sister, the central movement sounds more than ever like a scene from an opera. Captured in super audio sound that envelops the listener in the performances, this recording deserves to be heard by anyone who relishes Sibelius. Jean Sibelius : Symphonies Nos.
Sibelius: Symphonies Nos. The problem wasn't that Segerstam was conducting the Danish National Radio Album), because even if the musicians weren't Finnish, they played with the precision and power of the best international orchestras. The problem wasn't even that Segerstam was a bad Sibelius conductor, because most of his Danish Thirds and Fifths are terrific.
The problem was that Segerstam was an eccentric Sibelius conductor. Through his excruciatingly idiosyncratic tempos and textures, Segerstam's Danish Sibelius was an almost incoherent mess.
But Segerstam's second recording of the Third and Fifth, with the Helsinki Philharmonic, completely transcends the eccentricities of his Danish Third and Fifth. Nowadays, Segerstam's control of tempo is complete and his command of texture is total. With the wonderfully idiomatic playing of the Finnish orchestra, Segerstam finds the ideal balance in Sibelius' music between structure and evocation, between mass and motion. His Third Album) the nuance of chamber music and the overwhelming strength of orchestral music.
His Fifth has the speed of the rain, the size of a glacier, and the power of the cosmos. In these Finnish performances, Segerstam not only transcends his Danish eccentricities, he creates two of the greatest later Sibelius recordings. Ondine's sound is the thing in itself. Watch live.
