Ondine is pleased to announce the first release of an Enescu cycle with the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of its artistic director Hannu Lintu.
George Enescu is Romania’s most important composer – and one of the most neglected composers of the 20th century.
Artistic director of the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra since 2009, Hannu Lintu has rapidly been creating an international career and is a sought-after conductor.
Previous work from the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, Hannu Lintu and Ondine include Rautavaara’s opera Kaivos (ODE11742) and a recording with works by young Finnish composer Uljas Pulkkis (ODE11762).
This release will be the first of an Enescu cycle with Hannu Lintu. Two more – featuring, among others, symphonies no. 1 and 3 – will follow 2013 and 2014.
