WHITE NIGHTS

Devotees of Arvo Pärt's music should hear the music of Einojuhani Rautavaara. Before the Icons is a powerful memory piece based on a visit to a monastery in the middle of Lake Ladoga in Finland.

Shostakovich's 2nd Piano Concerto, with its beautifully romantic Chopinesque slow movement, recalls happy times before the Stalinist regime. Sibelius' 2nd Symphony is a vision of winter light, white heat and the great sweep of Finland's fjords and forests. Acclaimed Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu takes the reins.
