Something for Thursday

Last night I attended a school concert in which The Daughter was performing with her orchestra, and this work (shortened a bit) was on the program. I've never been the biggest fan of Jan Sibelius, but he does have his incandescent moments, and this tone poem has quite a few of them. Here is Finlandia (couple with some really nifty nature photography of Finland, so you might want to watch it on HD and in fullscreen, if that's a viable option).


Happy Thursday, folks!

I am absolutely, 100% in love with Sibelius' symphonies, but have never heard this piece. Thanks!

I learned this first as <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1Vs08RkP-M:> a church hymn</a>>
