About

Jorma Hynninen is one of the most celebrated Finnish singers. This new disc contains the legendary baritone's very personal account of songs by his compatriot Oskar Merikanto (1868-1924), which are worthy of discovery.

During his lifetime, Oskar Merikanto was just as popular as Jean Sibelius. He was the co-founder of what would become the Finnish National Opera and composed major contributions to the song and opera repertoire: a real master of melody who incorporated elements of folk music into his songs, Merikanto rightly provokes comparison with such composers as Schubert and Mahler.

Jorma Hynninen has contributed not only to a renewal in the art of interpreting solo songs but also to the creation of contemporary operas by Rautavaara and Sallinen, to name but two composers. His greatest musical love though has always been Lieder, a genre on which he successfully concentrates on this new recording.
