Description: Kuula was a student of Sibelius, and pieces such as the majestic Festive March share the great master’s national flavor while the descriptive Folk-Tale Pictures create their own beautifully romantic atmosphere. Kuula’s piano music is notable for its vast array of color and variety of style, from the melancholy Funeral March from the op. 26 pieces to the lighthearted Scottish Dance. Adam Johnson (piano).
