Pohjola, Pekka - Sinfonia No. 1 CD

SKU Svart SRE 490 CD
“During his long career that took him from riding the Finnish prog rock wave with Wigwam to the heavy jazz rock heights of the 1990s, Pekka Pohjola tried his hand in many things. Sinfonia no 1 was his only foray into the world of classical music. Inspired by Sibelius' 5th Symphony, Pohjola created this unforgettable piece of Nordic classical together with the Avanti Orchestra in 1989.”

“My goodness, did this man have any musical limitations? As I listen to this, I realize how fortunate we are to have had Pekka with us while we're on this planet. His musical contributions are so varied and consistently inspired that one tends to take him for granted.
But this Sinfonia shows his knowledge and talent in a new light. Contemporary yes, but with a heavy nod to the classicism of the past. He weaves, bursts, quietly mounts another dynamic section and just plain beauties you to death.”-progarchives
