FINNISH & BALTIC CONCERTOS
From the 19th Century to the Present
A Discography Of CDs And LPs
Prepared by Michael Herman
© 2012-17 Michael Herman
All national discographies
composers included in this discography were either born
in or came to live in the Scandinavian nations of Denmark,
Norway and Sweden, as well as their cultural offshoot, Iceland,
neighboring Finland and the Baltic Republics of Estonia,
Latvia and Lithuania. All of these have had strong cultural
ties over the centuries.
only two works documented here, Edvard Grieg's Piano Concerto
and Jean Sibelius's Violin Concerto, can be considered as
belonging to the international orchestral standard repertoire,
it can be readily seen from the contents of this work that
this part of the world has been a very fertile ground for
producing concertos over the last two centuries. The large
numbers of composers and recordings listed below stand as
a great tribute to the dedicated recording companies of
these various countries who have given the rest of the world
an ability to look into an important aspect of their national
is here defined as being available in a physical format
that can be (or could have been) purchased or obtained from
either a commercial or non-commercial source. Tape recordings,
DVD's, music available exclusively as downloads from the
internet and formats other than CD's or LP's are not included.
entry for each composer consists of two sections. First
there is a compact biographical paragraph that notes some
essential information such as place of birth, higher musical
education (including schools and prominent teachers), subsequent
musical careers in addition to composing, and details of
other concertos that have not been recorded. Compositional
styles are not discussed in these paragraphs, and readers
are referred to the bibliography where various reference
books that cover this subject are listed. The second part
of each composer entry consists of lists of his or her concertos
that have been recorded and the various recordings of each
work. A concerto is very broadly defined defined for the
purposes of this discography to include any work that has
the word "concerto," "concertino" or
"concertante" in its title whether or not a soloist
is involved. [However, the emphasis is on orchestral concertos;
composer-designated "concertos" for solo instruments
or for just a few instruments are not included. Also included
is any work in which an instrumental soloist is continually
involved whatever its title may be. For every concerto that
has them, the opus number, key signature and title are noted
and the year of composition (when known) is stated for all.
The entries of the concertos that have had multiple recordings
are listed alphabetically by soloist’s name. Each listing
of a recording consists of the following components (again,
if known): (1) Performers – soloist(s), conductor, orchestra,
(2) Other works on the recording, (3) Label and catalogue
number and year of issue, and (4) If the recording is a
reissue, the original LP or CD release, and its year of
issue. Please note that the performers listed are for the
entry work and not necessarily for the work or works that
complete the disc. Also, in most instances when an entry
work is included in a large collection (especially if most
of the other works are not related to the discography's
subject), the list of couplings is not given but is replaced
by the title of the collection.
noted on the title page, Stephen Ellis has edited this work.
However, he was much more than an editor who corrected my
errors both inadvertent and egregious, but he also enlightened
with me his vast knowledge of composers of the modern era
and recordings of their works. His contribution was indispensible
and greatly appreciated. Thanks also once again to Len Mullenger
for hosting my work on his superb MusicWeb International
website and also to David Barker for straightening out the
technical problems that I submitted along with the document.
NOTE(1) All recordings listed are CDs unless specifically designated
(2) Finally, as this discography is published online, it
can always be a work in progress, as the author has the
ability to amend the document when necessary with very little
difficulty. A work of this type is bound to contain errors
and omissions as so much material has been gathered from
so many diverse sources. Therefore, I ask anyone who consults
this discography and finds such errors or omissions to please
let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be very

linking to individual composers is not possible. We have kept the list
