Einar Englund: Complete Music for Solo Piano

Einar Englund (1916–99) was not only one of Finland’s major symphonists; he was also one of his country’s most important pianists and was destined for a career as a virtuoso until, as a soldier, he damaged a finger in a battle against the invading Russians. He wrote surprisingly little for his own instrument, but the works he did produce glitter with a Prokofievan steely strength and textural clarity, animated with the ironic humour that was typical of the composer himself.

Laura Mikkola, piano
