Dominante and Seppo Murto here present a disc of choral works for mixed choir by Jean Sibelius

The programme spans the entire active career of the composer and includes some of his best-known works, such as Rakastava (The Lover) and the Six Songs, Op.18, and the piece which has provided the title of the present disc: Saarella palaa (Fire on the Island).

The disc also includes some rarities, including some Neapolitan folk songs and a light-hearted serenade featuring the legendary Jorma Hynninen.

The disc ends with the hymn section from Finlandia, probably Sibelius’ most famous composition.

BBC Music Magazine

December 2012

*****

“Fascinating manuscript fragments and student exercises appear alongside Finnish and Swedish-language choral classics...Supple, springy choral singing.”

Gramophone Magazine

February 2013

“Where the newcomer scores is in a clutch of real rarities, the least of which - the five student Contrapuntal Exercises written in 1887-90 - are fascinating (and also very taxing to sing)...Dominante's 40 [singers] do it [Man fran slatten och havet] proud, Christian Starke's sound superbly capturing throughout their finely nuanced interpretations”
