New record “Laps’ Suomen” released now!

FCRCD-9755+CoverLaura Pyrrö’s and pianist Jouni Somero’s new CD, Laps’ Suomen, is now available from well-equipped music stores through Finland.

The recording’s repertoire consists of Finnish songs and opera arias from the 19th and 20th centuries, all sung in Finnish. The composers on this CD are Armas Järnefelt, Heino Kaski, Leevi Madetoja, Erkki Melartin, Oskar Merikanto and Fredrik Pacius.

All the songs selected to this recording are graceful in classic and timeless ways and the themes are drawn from romantic nationalism.

One first reconrding is also included: Erkki Melartin’s song “Mirjamin laulu III”. It was originally incuded in Eino Leino’s dramatized fairy play Meiram, which had it’s premiere in the early 1900’s. This song was reckoned to be lost a long time ago, until the quests bared fruit and an orchestra score was found in August.

The recording is produced by FC-Records and distributed by Naxos.
