Finnish scenic beauty and tradition inspire musical panoramas

As rugged and robust as Sibelius could be in his symphonies, so hushed and romantic could he be in his chamber music. Like a peaceful poet, he tells stirring stories about forests, trees and panoramas, beautiful walks and dreamy thoughts. Nature was an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Sibelius, but so too was the Finnish national folk epic the Kalevala. That is also true for Olli Mustonen, who seeks to transport his audience to another place with his Taivaanvalot (Heavenly Lights).
