Description: Just make sure your Finnish, Swedish and German are up to snuff because it seems that Naxos is not even providing online texts and translations (which, of course, are not much use to those many of you who have no computer anyway). But there is a photo of the performers in what may be period garb the garden at Sibelius' home of Ainola. No texts. Hannu Jurmu (tenor), Jouni Somero (piano).
