Cantus Arcticus / Piano Concerto
Released: Feb 1999
Acclaimed Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara's lush and highly mystical Cantus Arcticus mixes a full orchestra with tape loops of larks and swans. When combined with Piano Concerto No. 1 and Symphony No. 3, this album offers a strong sampling of Rautavaara's magical work of the 1960s and '70s.
