CDS 1035-2 Ernst Mielck (1877-1899): Symphony in F minor, Op. 4; Concert Piece for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 9. Liisa Pohjola, piano; Turku Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu.

A tragedy, when the Finnish Romantic Ernst Mielck died at the young age of 22, dreams unfullfilled. He was an extremely gifted pupil of Max Bruch. His symphony is a dark beautiful drama, with a third movement filled with an inward quality. The concert piece is based on folk musik from Finland, with many charming melodies.
