About

The new CD 'Peat, Smoke & Seaweed Storm' by the Finnish contemporary composer Osmo Tapio Räihälä introduces his three main orchestral works, performed by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra with the conductors Sakari Oramo and Dima Slobodeniouk, pianist Matilda Kärkkäinen and French horn player Jukka Harju.

The works on this SACD were inspired by things as different as a single malt whisky and the nature of Inner Hebrides, cosmic phenomena, African car stickers and a Scottish footballer. The work opening this record, Barlinnie Nine, is a musical portrait of the footballer Duncan Ferguson. On the very same evening that Barlinnie Nine was premiered, Ferguson – now a substitute – rose like a phoenix from the ashes to head the single goal of the game for Everton against Manchester United!
