Notes & Reviews:

'En Saga' is an initially delicate then dramatic evocation of nature. 'Pohjola's Daughter' was inspired by one of the legends of the Norseepic, the 'Kalevala'. 'The Bard' is short and contemplative in mood, without explicit programme. Based on Homeric epic rather than Nordic saga, 'The Oceantieds' evokes the nature of the sea. 'Tapiola' is the last of Sibelius's symphonic poems, a brilliantly evocative depiction of the Northern landscape and especially of its forests.
