Kuula's piano music is interesting and pleasant on the ear, without any pretensions.  Before I knew of the various recordings, I had for some time enjoyed playing the Lamb Polska (otherwise Mutton Dance!) without knowing anything about Kuula.

There are now three competing versions of the complete piano music:
Janne Oksanen on Alba ABCS445
Adam Johnson on Grand Piano GP780
Jouni Somero on FC Records FCRCD9758

Oksanen and Johnson's listings are identical, but Somero has an extra piece - an arrangement of a movement (5) from the orchestral South Ostrobothnian Suite no.1, op9.

I have only heard the Johnson in its entirety, so cannot comment on the other two - perhaps someone here has and would like to offer a comparative view?
