Usually ships within 1-3 days
The Tapiola Sinfonietta here performs Kalevi Aho's three chamber symphonies: three works that stretch the expressive capabilities of a string orchestra, and are thus highly demanding for the players.
The solo alto saxophone part in Chamber Symphony No.3 was written for the soloist John-Edward Kelly who appears here. Aho describes the piece as 'a hybrid of chamber symphony and saxophone concerto'.
The Tapiola Sinfonietta has earned high praise from reviewers around the world for its recordings ranging from Arvo Part to Saint-Saens and von Weber.
The conductors Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Stefan Asbury are both close collaborators with the orchestra.
