Complete description

This luxuriously packaged digibook contains four CDs along with notes in English and Finnish about the Finnish musical tradition, ranging from ancient folk music (on traditional instruments such as the kantele or as musical settings of poetry from the Kalevala) to serious concert music (featuring famous masterpieces by Jean Sibelius and other Finnish composers, as well as star artist performances by Karita Mattila, Soile Isokoski, Jorma Hynninen, Olli Mustonen and Kari Kriikku) and contemporary jazz (based on Finnish folk music, featuring Pekka Kuusisto & The Luomu Players). A fact sheet about Finland completes the richly illustrated 36-page book, which includes stunning nature photographs.

This product is an ideal cultural visiting card and can serve as a gift for friends, for business partners or simply for oneself.
