This concert pays tribute to composers representing three generations in Finnish music. One is Sibelius, of course, and the second is Kokkonen, whose Requiem was recorded by the FRSO the week before. Representing the present day is Sebastian Hilli, winner of the Takemitsu Composition Award. His earlier orchestral Affekt and Reachings were so impressive that Yle decided to commission more.

Johanna Rusanen-Kartano, soprano
