Scandinavian Sentiments - Cyprus Symphony Orchestra (Lemesos)

Finland, Norway, Austria and Cyprus. Four countries and four musical traditions come together in this concert, which offers us works by two contemporaneous Finnish composers, Uuno Klami and Jean Sibelius (even though the latter is much more well-known than the former), Edward Grieg, the most famous Norwegian composer (even though he did have Scottish ancestry), Mozart (an Austrian to the bone with, however, Italian influences), and a Cypriot soprano (based, however, in London). Yes, “Scandinavian Sentiments” is the title of the concert, so be prepared, for whosoever said that the Norse aren’t sentimental?

Sibelius: Pélleas et Mélisande Suite, op. 46 (excerpts)
