This album contains piano works by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, performed by Izumi Tateno - the dedicatee of the First Piano Sonata.
"The rendition by Japanese pianist Izumi Tateno is of a rare perfection."
Pierre-E. Barbier - Diapason
"Izumi Tateno, who has lived in Finland for nearly 25 years, is strongly associated with this music and plays every note and phrase with solid conviction."
Fanfare Magazine - November/December 1988
