Risto-Matti Marin’s recital of unknown Finnish Romantic piano music is a triumph. The works he has chosen all arouse surprised respect – who knew? – and he plays them with unhesitating conviction. Risto-Matti Marin’s performances – of music that is often fearsomely difficult – have a real swagger and confidence, and he has been given superb recorded sound.
