About

Pehr Henrik Nordgren's two works influenced by folk music, the Concerto for Clarinet Op.14 and Symphony No.1, are released here as World Premiere Recordings. The works are performed to a very high standard by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Juha Kangas.

Virtuoso clarinet soloist Christoffer Sundqvist has achieved a worldwide reputation. You can also hear folk instrumentalists in the concerto interpreting the composer's creative 'fusion imagination'. The symphony was a pioneering work, composed during the era when Finnish folk music themes were almost banned.
