Synopsis

Amazon.com
Sallinen (b. 1935) is a Finnish composer who has taken Sibelius's obvious influences well into post-modernism at the end of the 20th century. The two great works on this disc are the Sinfonia (of 1971), his first symphony, and his Sinfonia III (1974-'75). He works with an organic expansion of motifs that can be either tonal or atonal (or both at the same time). This is the riveting strategy of Sinfonia. His third symphony, Sinfonia III, develops the main argument in the same, drawn-out organic pattern--chaconne--but now the thematic elements are more song-like. --Paul Cook
