Description: Whether intended or not, it's striking that all of these works were written by their composers between the ages of 18 and 28, giving us a snapshot of Finnish piano music from 1899-1916, and also showing yet-to-be-formed musical personalities working with the neo-baroque and -classical forms of their day (Palmgren and Linko especially). Hannikaninen's 28-minute set of variations is the most significant work here, moving through vastly varied mind-scapes with a striking combination of Impressionism and Romanticism. 13 of the 17 tracks here (although not the Variations) are listed as first recordings. Jouni Somero (piano).
