Finland-based Tempera Quartet is best known for its incisive interpretations of the complete string quartet oeuvre of Jean Sibelius. Tackling some 20 works, or 70-odd movements, that make up the Finnish master's output, is no small feat, and the Tempera Quartet received high praise from critics for its three-CD set on BIS, which contains this mostly neglected music  .

Pehr Henrik Nordgren (1944–2008) has an output that is both extensive and diverse. He drew inspiration from such sources as Finnish and Japanese folk music, and his music has a strong narrative element. And although it is often described as being painted in dark hues, there are also flashes of hope. He composed some 40 works for chamber ensemble during his lifetime. He began his professional career as a composer of music in this genre with his first string quartet in 1967 and ended it with his eleventh, premiered more than four decades later and only a month before his death.

Pehr Henrik Nordgren. Modernist Finnish composer engaged with folk idioms. Nordgren communicated in more than 140 works, including two operas, eight symphonies (1974-2007), a chamber symphony (1996), 11 string quartets (1967-2008; the last two premiered earlier this year) and a variety of chamber, choral and instrumental pieces. His reputation rests on his concertos and music for stringed instruments. Nearly half of his concertos feature string solos: six for cello, including the volatile Hate-Love (1987, for cello and strings), four for violin and three for viola; many also have string-orchestral accompaniment only, sometimes with percussion.
