About this Performance

The Lemminkäinen Suite tells four stories from the Finnish national saga, the Kalevala, about the hero Lemminkäinen. Sibelius pulls out all his descriptive stops to create the wide-open, Northern musical landscape in which these tales play out, ranging from humorous to harrowing to haunting.

Today's performance is generously underwritten by Bernice and Wendell Jeffrey.
