One of the best known Finnish composers internationally, Aulis Sallinen (b.1935) celebrates his 80th birthday in 2015. As a tribute, Ondine is releasing the 2002 production of his latest opera, King Lear with the same cast that premiered the work at the Finnish National Opera in 2000.

“Sallinen's timing of the action seems to click into a higher gear forom the end of Act 1 Scene 2 where bastard Edmund 'deposes' Edgar from the Gloucester family inheritance. There is some classy singing from Salminen in the title-role...Silvasti's disturbed, neurotic Edmund, Jorma Hynninen's less-is-more Glcouester and Lilli Paasikivi's heart-and-soul Cordelia.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2015

Kullervo tells the story of a slave who is seeking revenge for the death of his parents. The libretto, written by the composer himself, is derived from the mythology of the Finnish national epic Kalevala.

This re-issue is released in time for the prestigious Savonlinna Opera Festival, which will stage a new production of Kullervo in the summer. Sallinen will celebrate his 80th anniversary in 2015

Finnish National Opera Orchestra, Finnish National Opera Chorus & Tsuumi Dance Company, Mikko Franck (conductor) & Pekka Milonoff (stage director)

Recorded live in Helsinki, Finnish National Opera, May 2008

Directed for video by Aarno Cronvall

This new DVD features the première recording for video of the two-act opera The Red Line (1978) by Finnish composer Aulis Sallinen (b. 1935).

Opera magazine called The Red Line “a work of both national and universal significance.” Its story centers on the fate of a poor woodsman, Topi, and his wife, Riika, and deals with the Finnish quest for social justice at the first free elections in 1907.

Legendary baritone Jorma Hynninen headed the Finnish National Opera ensemble in the work’s world première and subsequent tour performances to great acclaim: “Sallinen’s Red Line is the best new opera I have heard in many a year (...) it proved as gripping in its way as Wozzeck or Jenufa” The New York Times

This release pays tribute to Finnish composer Aulis Sallinen on the occasion of his 75th birthday in 2010. Sallinen started a new wave of Finnish opera in the 1970s, and The Red Line played a fundamental part in establishing Finnish contemporary music on the international scene.

“With musical intelligence and dramatic insight he projects a convincing mix of fortitude, desperation and helplessness...[Nisula's] edgy dramatic soprano is combined with first-rate acting skills...Franck conducts with super-charged commitment, giving the grim closing scenes the emotive force that elicits tears. The sound is good too.” International Record Review, December 2010

The Staff Band of the Norwegian Armed Forces, Ole Kristian Ruud

The Staff Band of the Norwegian Armed Forces is one of the most highly regarded military orchestras on the international scene. On this new album entilted “A Tribute to the Northern Winds” the band performs a collection of pieces by Scandinavian composers. It includes a trumpet concerto by Jukka Linkola which features the critically-acclaimed young soloist Tine Thing Helseth, as well as music by Sallinen, Hovland, Alfvén, Thommessen, and Schmidt.

In recent years the trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth has become one of the most sought after instrumental soloists in Europe, following her previous CDs for Simax, and . This winter she gave her debut recital in Carnegie Hall. On this new album she joins the Staff Band of the Norwegian Armed Forces in a performance of the Trumpet Concerto No. 2 by composer and jazz pianist Jukka Linkola. The music is playful and virtuosic, and is strongly influenced by the blues.

Renowned Finnish composer Aulis Sallinen incorporates his nation’s passion for the tango in a piece entitled ‘The Palace Rhapsody’. ‘Stabsarabesque’ was written for the Staff Band in 1974 by Norwegian composer Olav Anton Thommessen and has become one of his breakthrough pieces. Egil Hovland was also born in Norway and his ‘Fanfare and Choral’ is well known both in the version for symphony orchestra and in this original version for wind band. Hugo Alfvén is one of the most influential Swedish composers, and his Festival Overture is an elegant and heartfelt declaration of his love for the folk music of his homeland. Olé Schmidt was born in Denmark and is best-known for his work as a conductor. His ‘Homage à Stravinsky’ is a short three-movement piece written in 1985.
