About the album

After the series of symphony recordings, Vladimir Ashkenazy, one of the greatest musicians in our time, completes his love for  the music of Sibelius with playing of the composer's intimate piano pieces by himself. Mr. Ashkenazy selected Jarvenpaa hall, one of the halls with the best acoustics in Finland, as well as Ainola, the composer's house, for the recording, sharing the breath of nature the composer felt. Mr. Ashkenazy specially recorded "Valse triste", one of the most popular repertoire of Sibelius', the transcription by the composer himself, twice in this disc, first at the Jarvenpaa hall, and the second at Ainola using the composer's piano.
