Sibelius -- KULLERVO

This music video production is outstanding. The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra is remarkable here. The other parts are available.

The premiere of Sibelius's op. 7 took place in 1892, and then he withdrew the score. It wasn't published during the composer's lifetime. It is an astonishing work, based on a Finnish legend. This is a darkly beautiful tale unfolding in music. It matches up with my mood today.
