Notes & Reviews:

With 2015 marking his 150th birthday, conductor Hannu Lintu and the Finnish Radio Symphony offer a full program of classic orchestral works by Jean Sibelius, including the large and fascinating orchestral work in four movements based on the Finnish Kalevala epic, Lemminkainen. Written prior to his First Symphony, it is also noteworthy that Lemminkainen lacks nothing of a symphony, and includes some of his boldest and most dramatic scoring. Pohjola's Daughter (Pohjolan tytar), completed in 1906, is among Sibelius' final orchestral pieces directly linked to the Kalevala epic.

The performers come to their Sibelius honestly. The Finnish Orchestra has the promotion of Finnish music as a chief mission, and the conductor Hannu Lintu studied with Jorma Panula at the Sibelius Academy. The evocative, atmospheric mood of the quieter music is well captured, and the excitement of 'Lemminkinen's Return' and the climax in the development section of Pohjola's Daughter is thrilling in Ondine's excellent, clear, well balanced sound.
