Einar Englund (1916–1999) was not only one of Finlands major symphonists; he was also one of his countrys most important pianists. He was destined for a virtuoso career until he damaged a finger as a soldier in the Battle of Bengtskjär in the Finnish Continuation War in 1941 but when he later discovered the bullet holes in his beret, he realised he had had a lucky escape!

Einar Englund's music might not be as deeply original as that of his elder countryman Sibelius, but it is wonderful, beautifully made music nonetheless. The Piano Quintet dates from 1941. It was Englund's graduation exercise, and it attracted the favorable attention of Sibelius himself. Already you can hear the qualities that characterize all of Englund's music: the late-Romantic, Russian-leaning sound of Shostakovich and Prokofiev, the clean lines, tight formal control, and memorable melodic ideas.

Finnish composer, pianist, composition teacher and music critic Einar Englund was born in Ljugam on June 17th, 1916, and studied with Bengt Carlson at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. On a recommendation from Sibelius, possibly on the basis of his piano quintet, he continued his studies with Aaron Copland at Tanglewood. He fought in World War II, an experience which inspired at least some of his earlier works. Gaining tumultous acclaim for his first two symphonies, Englund rose to prominence in the period immediately following World War II, where his music's resemblance to the works of Shostokovich and Prokofiev attracted the attention of music lovers and critics alike. A composer who didn't belong to any modern school or trend, he over the years continued to enrich and refine his distinctive personal style. Englund died in Ljugam on June 27th, 1999.

EAC | FLAC+CUE+LOG | SCANS | 1 CD | 285 MB | Filesonic
XX Century Classical | Released: 1988 | Label: Finlandia

A compilation of rather unknown piano trios by Einar Englund, Dimitri Shostakovich, Aaron Copland and Joonas Kokkonen. Theone by Shostakovich is not his well known trio No. 2 but hus No. 1, op. 8, a work composed before his first symphony which brought him fame. The other trios are also well worth listening to. They are all composed in a moderate modern idiom.
Enjoy.

Einar Englund's music evinces a variety of stylistic resources and a catholicity of spirit that rival those of Igor Stravinsky, one of the composers who influenced him most. One of modern Finland's most renowned composers, Englund was born on the Swedish island of Gotland in 1916, and lived there for much of his life. He died in 1999. Englund's training included stints in both the U.S. (he studied with Copland at the Tanglewood Festival) and the Soviet Union. He was noted as an educator and as a music critic for a Helsinki daily newspaper as well as for his compositions. Currents of Bartókian folk modalism, Stravinskian Neo-Classicism, and a very Shostakovich-like confluence of irony and eloquence all flow through his music. Another influence he shares with Stravinsky is that of jazz – but whereas most European composers gained only a secondhand appreciation of jazz, Englund got to know the music well, working as a jazz pianist in the 1940s and 1950s.
On this CD his symphonies No. 2 (different performance than my other post) + No. 4 and his Pianoconcerto No. 1

These CD's provide a good overwiew of his works
