Nicholas Collon & Jukka Harju & Lilja Haatainen

Watch and listen LIVE at Yle Areena

“In the Arctic region, the ice breathes with the seasons, swelling in winter and shrinking in summer,” writes Outi Tarkiainen of Songs of the Ice. “Its age-old movement sings a song of its own: slowly surging, unrelenting and covering all beneath it.” György Ligeti was commissioned to write a Horn Concerto by a foundation in Hamburg, which is why it is called the Hamburg Concerto, as in the Bach Brandenburgs. Another masterpiece of concentrated musical thinking is Jean Sibelius’s last Symphony.
