These days, Aarre Merikanto (1893–1958) is one of the best-known early 20th century modernists in Finnish classical music. In his early years, he composed in the National Romantic style, but by the time he was 23, he had developed a much more progressive style. By the beginning of the 1920s, he was writing in a modern, free-tonal musical language with a strong focus on timbral colour. Merikanto himself considered his “radical” style to be innate, but we know he was in fact inspired by Debussy and Scriabin, and especially Sibelius’ Fourth Symphony. After moving from the countryside back to Helsinki in 1928, Merikanto started actively networking with other Finnish composers, which also had an effect on his music.

Merikanto wrote just about every kind of work typical for his time: symphonies, tone poems, two operas, choral works, choral works with orchestra, orchestral songs, concertos, chamber music, works for solo instruments, and art songs. He composed half his song oeuvre prior to his opera Juha (1920–22). For a couple of decades, he wrote hardly any, but after he turned 50, something changed, and he started writing new art songs somewhat regularly again. So far, research on Merikanto’s music has had a strong focus on his orchestral works, and it is this part of his oeuvre that has also been recorded the most. Many of his art songs have been recorded but until now, but only a handful of them have been readily available for the general public. Despite Merikanto having deceased more than 60 years ago, almost half of his songs will now be published as a recording for the first time.
