This album features one of the most frequently performed Finnish orchestral works of all time, Cantus Arcticus - Concerto for Birds and Orchestra by Einojuhani Rautavaara, which is coupled with Symphonies Nos. 4 and 5.

This release is the second volume in a cycle featuring the complete symphonies by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara. The recordings were made in Leipzig in 1989/1990, with the Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra led by its then Chief Conductor Max Pommer, and originally released in July 1990.

"Few contemporary symphonic composers deserve as high acclaim as Einojuhani Rautavaara. (...) Not since the Sallinen Third Symphony have I been as impressed with a new symphony as I am with No. 5. A truly great masterpiece."

Lewis M. Smoley - American Record Guide - July/August 1991
