Despite his qualification- I would wish to thank SBookman for uploading the Salmenhaara compositions originally generously provided by Tapiola on cd-r Smiley
Mmm...indeed, lovely idea, but my 3 attempts so far have yielded nothing except the Mediafire sign-up pages. Tell me I'm missing something !

Thanks.                    Clive.

My sincere gratitude to Sbookman and Tapiola as well, but alas! I am experiencing the same problem as Clive.

My first attempt to download the files took me also to my own Mediafire account Roll Eyes.....but I tried again all was well.

Listening now to the lovely Symphony No.5 "Isle of Bliss" Smiley

Many thanks from me as well! Indeed, Symphony no. 5 is quite beautiful-it brings to mind Rautavaara's gentler works Smiley It certainly lives up to its subtitle!

I wish I could upload the text. It is Aleksis Kivi's "Isle of Bliss" about a heavenly island of gentle little people living an idyllic existence.

Thanks from me as well, for uploading the Salmenhaara works!

One question -- is there information posted anywhere on who the performers are? Or did I miss an earlier post?

In appreciation for the treasure trove of Salmenhaara recently uploaded, I'm adding his Adagietto.

Also, some more Finnish rarities for a Saturday afternoon -- two works by Aarre Merikanto and one by Tauno Marttinen. The Merikanto Intrada is probably my favorite work of his -- not as fascinatingly experimental as much of his other works, but just a tuneful delight.

There is precious little orchestral music to be had, from any source, by Tauno Marttinen. BIS recorded his First and Eighth Symphonies a number of years ago, but I'd love to hear some of the others. Anyone on the forum have anything they can share? Marttinen is a bit more astringent and atonal than some forum members may like, but I find his music pleasantly moody.

Thank you for the Marttinen!! 2 works new to me.  He wrote soooooo much music. It has really hurt any serious study I'm afraid.  At age 50 he destroyed everything he had written and started over! The new Opus 1 was from 1958.  He reached 300 something opus numbers!

Thanks from me as well! After hearing the BIS disc of Marttinen's Symphonies 1 and 8, I was not exactly dying to hear more of his music. Like Maris said, it can be quite astringent and atonal for my ears. But I'm quite grateful for the opportunity to be able to further evaluate Marttinen's music Smiley
