Description: As the title promises, this is all late Romanticism with the two largest pieces being the monumental 28-minute sonata by Hannikainen from 1912 and the more compact 17-minute sonata by Marvia (1945) while Sibelians will recognize Wegelius and Faltin as among the master composer’s teachers. Risto-Matti Marin (piano).
