Played by pianist Stephen de Pledge with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra conducted by Bramwell Tovey.

Magnus Lindberg is a giant of the Finnish musical scene, both as a pianist and composer.

This concerto written while he was composer-in-residence with the New York Philharmonic is a complex and fascinating exploration of the concerto form.

Recorded 6 May 2016, Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington by RNZ Concert.

Producer: Roger Smith

Engineer: Graham Kennedy
