A Finnish evening with Mikko Franck

The Finnish conductor Mikko Franck shows us the beauty of the music of his homeland. Jean Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony evokes associations with the austere beauty of the Finnish landscape – particularly in the finale, which was inspired by the sight of swans flying overhead. Esa-­Pekka Salonen’s Karawane also has mystical strength. From Einojuhani Rautavaara, we will hear one of the best-known 20th-century settings of the requiem.
