All of Armas Järnefeldt's piano works on a single record for the first time by pianist Janne Oksanen and Risto-Matti Marin

Armas Järnefelt (1869-1958) is arguably one of the most important national romantic composers in Finland. He is best known as a conductor and he had an extensive career as the director of Stockholm's Opera for over 30 years. Like nearly all Finnish composers at the time, his music also was left in the shadow of Jean Sibelius.

The goal of this album has been to record Järnefelt's complete piano works for the first time. In addition to Järnefelt's original piano pieces, the album includes his arrangements of music by other composers as well as other composer's arrangements of Järnefelt's music. Thus, these 3 categories have now been gathered on a single album for the first time.

JANNE OKSANEN (b. 1994) played his first recital at the age of 15 and since then he has
performed as a soloist and chamber musician widely in Finland as well as in Europe and USA. His debut album Toivo Kuula: Complete Piano Works was released by Alba Records in September 2019. The album received praise from several reviews and was included on the Helsinki Times 'The Best Albums of 2019' list. Oksanen is an active pedagogue as well. The Taubman Approach, an ergonomic approach to piano playing healed his long-term playing injuries in 2017 and he has been studying and teaching the approach ever since.

Oksanen graduated as a Master of Music in 2020 from Sibelius Academy where he studied with Risto-Matti Marin. In 2014-2015 he studied in Conservatoire de Paris with Denis Pascal. His previous teachers include Teppo Koivisto and Rebekka Angervo. He has participated in masterclasses with Pascal Devoyon, Konstantin Bogino, Edna Golandsky, Malcolm Bilson, Alberto Nose, Liisa Pohjola and Matti Raekallio. He has also studied conducting and composition.
