Programme Notes
Debussy, Saint-Saëns, Sibelius

Sibelius' "Swan of Tuonela" is one of the classic request concert pieces – and one of the favourite works of English hornists, who have to play an extended solo here. But it is only one of four "Lemminkäinen legends" written by the Finnish composer. Originally he had an opera in mind, but then he decided on an orchestral suite of stories that have been handed down in the "Kalevala". For once, here's not only the hit from it, but also the rarely performed rest.
