Description: As a whole these 20 pieces portray a versatile palette of different stages of Kuula’s life, from teenage sketches (Air varié) to impressionistic moods from Paris (Fairytale Picture no 2). In general, the music is mostly lyrical but often suggesting the wild and rugged aspects of the Finnish landscape. 80 minutes to boot! Janne Oksanen (piano).
