This new release completes Ondine’s two-disc survey of Madetoja’s symphonies. Considered one of Sibelius’ finest contemporaries in Finnish orchestral music, Madetoja merges the landscape and folk songs of his native province of Ostrobothnia with a French elegance (Symphony No.3) to create a unique voice.
John Storgårds and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra are widely celebrated, both in live performance and recordings. Their release of Rautavaara’s Cello Concerto No.2 was given the 2012 Contemporary recording prize at the 2012 Gramophone awards and the previous release in this series (Symphony No.2) was described as being conducted with ‘sharp insight and unfaltering authority. Under Storgårds’ baton the impeccably prepared Helsinki Philharmonic exhibits their commitment to the music’ (MusicWeb), with BBC Music Magazine awarding 4 stars for a ‘vividly performed’ recording.
This release includes the orchestral suite from the ballet pantomime Okon Fuoko. The work has clear affinities to Ravel and Prokofiev and reveals Madetoja’s modernism as a composer in the early 20th century.
