Notes and Editorial Reviews
Scenes of Finland, its capital Helsinki and its countryside, are intercut with the work of the painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela, who, like his contemporary Jean Sibelius, captured the spirit of his country and its legends in his work.
Jean Sibelius is the greatest of all Finnish composers and it is his music that accompanies scenes from his native Finland, its landscape and legends. He drew inspiration from the ancient stories of his country included in the great collection of legends that make up the Kalevala, and from the Finnish landscape.
