Sibelius Orchestral Songs
Sibelius The Bard
Sibelius Lemminkäinen Suite

If Kullervo (see November 12) is the tragic hero in the Finnish Kalevala epic, then Lemminkäinen is the Sunday child: a heartthrob who ends up in the underworld, dies there, and is barely brought back to life. In Sibelius' suite of the same name, Lemminkäinen's adventures pass by like an action film, with the enchanting English horn solo in The Swan by Tuonela as a resting point.

Introduction at 1.15 pm by Michel Khalifa.
