Es gibt sie noch: große, tonale und wunderschöne Sinfonik aus dem europäischen Norden. Die 7. Sinfonie von E. Rautavaara kann mit Recht als eines der großen sinfonischen Werke des 20. Jahrhunderts bezeichnet werden. In der hier vorliegenden Fassung unter dem traumwandlerisch sicherem Dirigat von Leif Segerstam ein absolutes Muß für jeden Fan grosser Sinfonik. Zumal die CD auch aufnahmetechnisch nichts zu wünschen übrig lässt. Herausragend!!!
Die Grundstimmung der Sinfonie ist melancholisch, ja fast düster. Einzig im 2. Satz gibt es einige Ausbrüche, die konzentrierteres Hören verlangen. Die anderen Sätze sind eher ruhig, und die Klangstrukturen sprechen unmittelbar an. Perfekt für einen schönen Herbst- oder Winterabend.
Um die CD richtig einordnen zu können, sei gesagt, dass Fans von Nielsens 5., Pärts 3., Sibelius 5. aber auch Mahlers 9. garantiert auch dieses Werk lieben werden.
Das ebenfalls auf der CD vorhandene Orgelkonzert ist eher etwas für Verfechter atonaler Musik; von daher ist der Kontrast interessant.
Für manche CDs müsste man 6 Sterne geben können. Diese gehört definitiv dazu!

Die 7.Sinfonie von E. Rautavaara kann zurecht als letzte große Sinfonie des 20. Jahrhunderts bezeichnet werden. Viel hängt natürlich vom Geschmack des Hörers ab. Wer, wie ich, tonale und komplexe Sinfonien aus dem Norden mag, kommt an dieser hevorragend aufgenommenen und vom großartigen Dirigenten Leif Segerstam stimmig interpretierten Sinfonie nicht vorbei.
Der Grundcharakter ist melancholisch, ja fast schon düster. Und hieraus wird dann auch die große Kunst des Komponisten offenbar, der sich mit seiner 7.Sinfonie "Angel of Light" völlig aus seiner atonalen Phase verabschiedet hat. Entstanden ist ein komplexes, aber sehr ruhiges Klanggebilde, dass auf ganzer Linie begeistert. Für mich ist das Werk im gleichen Atemzug wie die 5.Sinfonie von Carl Nielsen, die 9.Sinfonie von Gustav Mahler, die 5.Sinfonie von Jean Sibelius sowie die 3.Sinfonie von Arvo Pärt zu nennen. Herausragend!!!
Das ebenfalls enthaltene Orgelkonzert "Annunciations" für Orgel, Holz- und Blechbläser ist insofern interessant, dass es in seiner Atonalität einen absoluten Kontrapunkt zur 7.Sinfonie setzt. Somit werden alle Fans neuerer Klassik gleichermaßen bedient.
Fazit: Ein absoluter Pflichtkauf für jeden Freund sinfonischer Klassik. Leider kann man nicht 6 Sterne geben!

4.0 von 5 Sternen My First Exposure to Rautavaara, and a Fine One! 10. Oktober 2008
Von Moldyoldie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
By way of recommendation, this CD is my first exposure to this contemporary Finnish composer. While it's perhaps too easy to pigeonhole Rautavaara's Symphony No. 7 "Angel of Light" into that formless invented genre dubbed "new age", I will say that it provides abundantly more musical substance than anything I've heard by the likes of Philip Glass. Not only does this four-movement work exude a shimmering beauty and drama evocative of far northern latitudes, but also a sense of "universal introspection" by way of a colorful and mostly lyrical orchestral display. I'm particularly enamored of its occasional outpourings from the string basses effectively interspersed with the light emanating from the higher strings and winds. It was indeed Sibelius who made effective (and affecting) use of this melding of dark and light. A very fine solo violin is also a highlight. I can certainly understand this work's relative popularity among fans of both classical and contemporary music and believe it to be justified, if only because I feel a compulsion to occasionally revisit this to delve deeper into its beautiful mysteries.

Annunciations offers a similar amorphous melding of timbres effectively offset by the unique sounds of the organ; its more intimate scale allows for clearer textures and more explicit musical nuances. The playing is exquisite; the music is alternatingly expressive and introverted with the organ seemingly in a state of self-examination. This work is probably less "egalitarian" in its appeal than Angel of Light, but still an intriguing listen nonetheless.

I should also mention that my copy of the CD, purchased used from an Amazon seller, was absolutely lacking notes of any kind -- the folding cover was blank inside.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Is Rautavaara's music spiritual? Physical? Meta-physical? 20. Juni 2011
Von J.K. Tapio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
During the last 10 years, Rautavaara's symphony no. 7, subtitled "Angel of light", has become, in Leif Segerstam's interpretation, a perennial favourite with me. The orchestration of this symphony is so dense that I have the feeling that each time I listen to it, I find something new in it -- a shade of timbre here, an orchestral detail there, an emphasis on a certain group of instruments in another place. This is music that seems to have an oddly protean quality. At the same time, it is mystical without being New-Agey; majestic without being pompous; definitely modern without being inaccessible; and, finally, melodic without being naive or simplistic.

Other reviewers here have remarked on the overwhelming, almost physical quality of this music. I have to admit that listening to Rautavaara's "Angel of light" symphony has given me the nearest equivalent of what might be called a mystical (or near-mystical) experience. A practical agnostic (although I try to cultivate an open mind), I can now appreciate, at least in artistic terms, what would it feel like to have an experience of this kind -- in this case, an angelic vision. For Rautavaara, angels are not simply the harbingers of good and light as they are so often described in classical (and popular) art -- they also have their dark, elemental and terrifying side, represented in the music by dissonant figures and contrasting elements. Rautavaara himself likes to quote the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who in one of his poems writes something like every angel being terrifying. And that is exactly the image painted by the music here: sublime, overwhelming, yes, even terrifying.

The other piece on this CD, "Annunciations", a concerto for organ and brass instruments, continues philosophically in a similar vein, although the musical language leans even more towards the dissonant and the contrastive. However, usually I stop listening to this CD here, because I find the symphony to be such an emotionally intense experience that I do not feel the need to listen to any other music after it.

I have the feeling that Segerstam captures the essence of the symphony so well that up to now I have not even considered acquiring another CD version, as much as I love this symphony. I really should give a listen to the other versions of this symphony available on disc, just to see how they compare with Segerstam's account.

Some commentators have remarked on the supposed "lack of substance" of Rautavaara's music. But to me and some other listeners (see the other reviews on this page) this music speaks quite differently. To me, Rautavaara's music (on this disc and several others as well) *is* the substance; while listening to it, I feel like I am bathed in substance!

Recommended without reservations to anyone interested in the music of our times, and beyond.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Utterly Compelling 4. August 2009
Von Karl W. Nehring - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Angel of Light, composed in 1994, is a symphony that I can enthusiastically recommend even to those with more cautious musical attitudes. This four-movement symphony starts off with a stately but flowing first movement, an energetic second movement that is too serious to be a scherzo, an absolutely gorgeous third movement (titled come un sogno--"like a dream") that invokes visions of another world, thus living up to the work's title, and a wondrous final movement that reminds me of some ways to the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams with its hymn-like underpinnings and pastoral outpourings. This is a wonderful symphony that deserves to be heard by all who love orchestral music.

Annunciations, which was written in 1976-77, is scored for the unusual combination of wind orchestra, brass quintet, and organ. As you can well imagine, this leads to some interesting sonorities, and Rautavaara takes full advantage of the sonic possibilities--including such ideas as having the organist turn off the organ in mid-chord, a remarkable effect--in writing music that seems to flow naturally from birdsong to chorale and beyond. Overall, this is a fascinating piece that rewards repeated listening. Taken together, Angel of Light and Annunciations add up to more than an hour of utterly compelling, well recorded, and well performed music that makes this a CD that I truly urge those readers who love orchestral music to track down and audition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A truly Finnish Angel? 21. September 2010
Von Marko Vuorsalo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yes, a Finnish Angel?

I have to say, first of all, I am NOT an extremely close friend of contemporary "classical" music, a.k.a. "Serious Music"... But, for some reason, this particular piece struck a very deep chord in my heart... Possibly because I myself am Finnish? The combinations of the lush strings, and occasional brass, seems to portray the Finnish nature, both of NATURE and of PEOPLE! Also, Rautavaara's use of the percussion in the first mvt is something that I would dare say evokes the chills, but at the same time warmth of Finnish Winter... Hard, but soft, all at the same time. As for the second movement's dissonant and quite fast music, I'd dare say that there's a bit of both Finnish humour, and "stubbornness", such as the kind that helped Finland stay independent through WW2? I think the part in the middle with the wild brass and percussion must portray this... Also, musically, I can clearly hear a thematic unity between the movements! The Third movement is something all of it's own class! It is one of the "Top 10 Adagios", pardon my contemporary language, but, this is one of my very favourite Adagios, together with the Barber Agnus Dei, the Mahler Adagietto, Mahler 3rd Symphony Finale, Mahler 9th Finale, Beethoven's 9th symphony Adagio, and Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata's adagio... Then, the Finale... The initial flourish of the brass, gives me a feeling of "Give Heed! The Angel of Light Speaketh!", then the melody, which I interpret as a "kind of 12-tone" one, starts, which leads into a meditation of themes, with the winds interspersing with nervous figures... What would all this mean? Is it heaven? Is it earth? I find this a highly philosophical work. But, based on the development of the mass of sound, the tonality, and the pure timbre of the orchestra, I believe we have arrived to the very realm of this "Angel of Light", that is, the ultimate light. Be it Heaven, Nirvana, Enlightment, whatever you wish to call it, in this music it is achieved! Just listen! Can you disagree? Strings, and horns, and occasional bursts of louder brass, just cannot do anything else than lift me to a higher realm!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mind-Blowing: pristine and emotionally amazing. 4. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With his Seventh Symphony, Rautavaara achieves a level of musical mastery beyond any living composer. This piece has it all: advanced "cyclic" form (as in Mahler), balance beyond belief, orchestration crafted delicately and powerfully, and themes conceived so pristinely as to make every composer jealous. The slow movement of "Angel of Light" is amazingly beatiful, as is the entire piece. But my reaction to the 3rd movement of this astounding work was unlike any I've ever had. I could feel my mind growing to percieve this wonderous music. I could not move- I couldn't do anything save listen. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Now you might think that that is a bit over-the-top, but you have not heard this music. I immensely recommend this to all of you. IF I could live with just one piece of music- this would be it.
