DVD A Musical Journey: Finland
A Musical Tour of Helsinki and the Finnish Landscape.
Listen to music from famous composers as you take in scenes of Finland.
Scenes of Finland, its capital Helsinki and its countryside, are intercut with the work of painter Akseli Gallen-Lallela, who, like his contemporary Jean Sibelius, captured the spirit of his country and its legends in his work. The Music: 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 Kalevala and from the Finnish landscape.
