Forbes names Tüür's Piano Concert and Symphony No.7 fourth best classical recording of 2014 ({{commentsTotal}})

The 10 Best Classical Recordings of 2014 list, compiled by Jens F. Laurson, Forbes' culture contributor, includes two contemporary works, among them Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür's Piano concerto and Seventh Symphony, performed by the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, led by fellow Estonian Paavo Järvi, and Finnish pianist Laura Mikkola.

Tüür's recordings were on the list "immediately from first hearing, very early on in the year," Laurson writes.

Tüür's choral symphony, written in 2009 and commissioned by Hessische Rundfunk and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, is dedicated to the Dalai Lama. The texts, sang by the NDR Choir, include words of the Buddha from the Dhammapada, along with sayings of more contemporary figures like Mother Theresa.

The Piano Concerto was written in 2006.
