Rautavaara - Book Of Life download album

Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara continues to be an astonishingly productive composer, as A Tapestry of Life, written when he was 79, demonstrates. As with so many of his later works, the four-movement orchestral piece is lushly scored, strongly evocative, and has a radiant energy. Written soon after his recovery from a catastrophic illness, the music and the title reflect the composer's assertive optimism. Rautavaara composed a set of piano pieces, Before the Icons, as a student in 1955, but didn't orchestrate it and fill it out for another 50 years.

Finnish composer noted for the birdsong of his Cantus Arcticus and his works featuring images of angels. In the course of a long compositional career, the defining feature of the music of the Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, who has died at the age of 87, was its stylistic adaptability. The distinctive Rautavaara soundworld familiar from his later, internationally successful works evolved only gradually, achieving its fully recognisable form in the 1980s

Book of Life is the second album by the Jamaican reggae artist I Wayne. It features his typically smooth voice over typical Jamaican rhythms. The album reflects I Wayne's personal philosophy of positivism and his stance against rude boy culture, which he blames for several of Jamaica's problems. In "Life Is Easy", he expresses his view that the only way out of suffering is to be grateful for the positives in one's life. Jealousy and Abuse" deals with the problem of domestic violence.
