Finnish composer and pianist Selim Palmgren (1878-1951) was a very successful concert pianist throughout Finland and Scandinavian. He is sometimes known as the Nordic Chopin. Throughout his career, Palmgren wrote a great deal of piano music. In fact, his extant catalog includes 300 individual piano works and five piano concertos. This release includes the first three of Palmgrens piano concertos, along with seven short pieces for violin and piano. Pianist Henri Sigfridsson is the star of this album, along with violinist Jan Soderblom.
