Hannu Lintu conducts Sibelius's Symphony No. 5 Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra

About

Finnish maestro Hannu Lintu presents and conducts the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra in all seven bold and unique symphonies by their celebrated compatriot Jean Sibelius!

April 21, 1915. Sibelius writes: “Today at ten to eleven I saw 16 swans. One of my greatest experiences! Lord God, what beauty! They circled over me for a long time. Disappeared into the solar haze like a gleaming silver ribbon. Their call the same woodwind type as that of cranes, but without tremolo. The swan-call closer to the trumpet … A low refrain reminiscent of a small child crying. Nature's mysticism and life’s angst! The Fifth Symphony’s finale theme: legato in the trumpets!"
