Songs of Goddesses and Heroes

Lose yourself in a world of legends with the incantatory music of Jean Sibelius. Swirling with primal energy, this series of symphonic poems evokes the Finnish creation-goddess Luonnotar, the celestial Maiden of Pojohla who spins golden threads in the sky, and the hero Lemminkainen, who meets death and resurrection in the netherworld of Tuonela. Resonant of ancient Scandinavian ballads, these works express Sibelius’ belief that “music begins where the possibilities of language end.”
