I am trying to find any information on this composer... apparently, Karelian-Finnish .. his Symphony in D was recorded and released by Melodiya in the 1960s   D-10225/6
with Suite on themes of "Kalevala"  recorded by the Karelian Radio Symphony Orchestra... any info or mp3s would be appreciated. 

He is a real obscure composer...

By the way, Roine Rautio already died in 1960. For quite some time, I have wondered why he died at such a young age. Earlier this year, I then found out it was due to a freak accident. During a trip by motor boat together with his two older brothers Erik and Heino, their boat collided with a rock. That was on August 19, 1960. Only Erik survived.

Their father Karl (18891963) was a composer himself. If I remember correctly he also composed two symphonies. I don't know about any recordings.

Composer Fridrich Bruk (he was born in Ukraine in 1937, emigrated to Finland in 1974) has written a symphony in memory of Roine Rautio.
Apparently he had the chance to know the composer personally, so he dedicated his 4th Symphony to him.

Here, the first 11 minutes is Roine Rautio's suite on the themes of Kalevala:



Regarding his father, here is 1st page of his "Symphony No. 1", but it seems to be a piano score:

All in all, Roine Rautio mixed Sibelian influences with the Russian school in quite an interesting way.
