Sibelius was a great master of the tone poem and En Saga is an eloquent expression of mystery, drama and romance.

Brahms' Violin Concerto is a work of great majesty, technical demand and exquisite lyricism. Soloist Anna-Liisa Bezrodny will assuredly impress with an impassioned performance and superb technique.

Rachmaninov's Third Symphony reflects the grief and the cheerful determination of a patriotic composer separated from his Russian homeland; it is a romantic 'song of exile and love'.
