Profundity and popular entertainment kick off this Sibelius festival. Where did Sibelius get his ideas? Learn about his Finnish roots through performances of folk music based on Finnish folklore, ‘runes’, by specialists from the Sibelius Academy. Violinist Pekka Kuusisto is the ideal host. He improvises with rune singer Ilona Korhonen and plays chamber music by Sibelius.
