This concert throws a light on the rich and still little-known
musical culture around the Baltic Sea. The Lithuanian Balys
Dvarionas's Violin Concerto is a defiantly unashamedly
romantic outpouring, while the Estonian Erkki-Sven Tüür and
the Finn Einar Englund pay hommage to the giant figure that
both inspired and intimidated them – Jean Sibelius.
