Firstly the Lahti SO played with its usual excellence pity the material it had to work with - a waste of time. Based on previous review i bought this cd only to be greatly dissapointed. It seems Mr Aho wrote music for different sections of the orchestra and just shoved them together. I gave this cd to a friend who likes abstract music and he liked it so my money wasnt wasted otherwise it would have been. For someone who likes melodic/lyrical etc music boy did i choose a bummer.
