Notes and Editorial Reviews

The first recording in this series from Alba, titled The River, received brilliant reviews. The album included Selim Palmgren’s Piano Concertos nos 1-3, performed by Henri Sigfridsson and was one of the most sold records on the Alba label in 2016. Now, Alba releases April- the second album in the series. Selim Palmgren is a master of Finnish Piano Concertos, and on this new release we hear his magnificent Piano Concertos nos. 4-5. The brilliant performer on the album is Janne Mertanen who has done many recordings for Alba and has specialized in Chopin’s music. Two other pieces conductor Jan Soderblom has chosen for this record are Pastorale in three scenes and Exotic March.
