Not too long ago we had another CD of Aulis Sallinen's music. I hope you liked it, because here is another one, incl. his 2nd symphony: Symphonic Dialogues for a percussion player and orchestra. I remember vividly the rehearsals for the first performance, the soloist being Rainer Kuisma "the human octopus" and the Finnish RSO under Okko Kamu. A bassoon player, who had made some sotto voce comments before, stood up, more or less shouting: This cannot be right! I have an F#, but the oboe has an F natural. So which is it??? Whereupon Sallinen, very calmly, stood up in front of the orchestra, saying: Dear xxx, it is called a dissonance. Raucous laughter, noone could play for quite some time. Unfortunately Rainer had pensioned himself off at the time of this recording, but fortunately, Gert Mortensen could do it. Very nice music. RvB
