Sibelius's "Symphony No. 0", Kullervo, inspired by the Finnish national epos, Kalevala. As can be seen from the playing time, Osmo Vänskä and his faithful Lahti orchestra take their time, not just sailing through the music that is otherwise so normal nowadays. This is especially evident in the 2nd movement that is almost half again as long in this version as normal, really gnashing through the jarring dissonances that Sibelius allowed himself - it is simply mindboggling and one of my favourite Sibelius movements, period. Add the foremost Finnish male choir, YL, baritone Raimo Laukka and soprano Lili Paasikivi and we have a bull's eye! RvB
