Coming soon:


Symphonic Poems
Estonian National Symphony Orchestra (Artist), Heino Eller (Composer), Olari Elts (Conductor)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WV6H59J/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1



Estonian nature is at the heart of all these orchestral works by Heino Eller (1887–1970), one of the founders of the Estonian school of music and subsequent mentor to generations of the country’s most celebrated composers, including Arvo Pärt and Eduard Tubin. Pärt himself has acknowledged Eller’s gift for subtle and masterly orchestration, and his resultant personal style of composition. This is the second volume of Eller’s music on the Ondine label and comprises four symphonic poems, including one of his most popular orchestral works, Dawn (Koit). If you’re unfamiliar with Eller’s music, you owe yourself this introduction to its greatness. As Pärt said: ‘Heino Eller was much more than anything I can express in words. It was largely due to him that music in Estonia was able to achieve a cultural and professional dignity.’

I've greatly enjoyed both of the recent Ondine releases of Eller's music. I wish they would record his First Symphony.

There is a broadcast recording with the Estonian NSO under Kaljuste circulating, however no commercial recording yet.

The continuing series on Toccata Classics of his piano music is also worth a listen
