You have go to give credit to BIS for at least attempting to keep pace with Aho's apparently ceaseless flow of new concertos Grin And it is excellent that the company has gone back to record the previously unrecorded Piano Concerto No.1 from 1988-89-the only one of the early concertos missing from the catalogue.

Suddenly a lengthy list of new cds to buy this summer Smiley

For those who may be interested, the unrecorded Aho concertos will now be:

Double Cello Concerto (2003)
"Bells": Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and orchestra (2008)
Trombone Concerto (2010)
Trumpet Concerto (2011)
"Seidl": Concerto for Percussion and orchestra (2011)
Cello Concerto No.2 (2013)
Double Concerto for Cor Anglais and Harp (2014)
Tenor Saxophone Concerto (2015)
Violin Concerto No.2 (2015)
Accordion Concerto (2015-16)

....and Aho may well have composed more since 2016 Grin

It's a very fine release and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Full of imaginative colors, drama, and well thought out structure.  I very much love this composer.  For those who haven't heard his music, it is hard to describe except to say there is some early Rautavaara (who was also strongly influenced by Sibelius, Shostakovitch, and Mahler) but still very unique.  I have not heard a single work from any of these composers I did not enjoy or at the very least find very finely written.  Aho is also active on social media and I've been lucky to have many exchanges with him.  He told me about his Symphony No. 17 before it was composed or announced for example.  I wish him much further productivity and success.  I am a big fan.

You obviously have the advantage over me; the cd is not released in the UK until 29 June.

Touché because I am missing out on a concert I would certainly attend if I lived in the UK that happened today and envy my UK friends who have the opportunity to attend.
