Songs of Solitude (Alba Records, 2017)

Solo clarinet works by composers Outi Tarkiainen, Olivier Messiaen, Franco Donatoni, Luciano Berio and Steve Reich. The CD can be purchased here.

“…a successful study of solitude and melody.”

“Sallinen plays as he promises, i.e. melodically – but beyond the borders of song. He is master of the extreme instrumental techniques of Berio’s Sequenza, executes Reich’s rhythms with electronic precision and traces divine limpid lines in the works by Messiaen and Tarkiainen. My favourite on the disc is the last track, Donatoni’s Clair I, which soars, crystal-clear, to the heights and where necessary swings. Sallinen executes the countless timbral details in passing, lightly, in just the right way.” (Kare Eskola / YLE)
