    Mike Oldfield and Anderson led me to Sibelius. They provided my "in" to the mysterious, intimidating and perplexing world of classical music.

    He is. He visited Finland few years ago just to hear all symphonies of Sibelius.

    Makes sense....their music is so immersed in nature. And gnomes and elves.

    In fact elves mean nothing to us. Gnomes.. those I don't talk about.

    A bit of trivia: his real first name was Johan. Jean was a "stage name" he borrowed from his uncle.

    Another vote for Sarah Chang on the violin concerto. In addition to the symphonies and tone poems there's a nice box set of the incidental music on Naxos conducted by Segerstam. For the former I favor Alexander Gibson's recordings on Chandos.

    One of the true giants of Progressive Rock. His electric guitar work on the 1884 album Put Away Your Razor set the standard for Prog-Rock for a generation.

    The cold weather means Tapiola, Wood Nymph, Lemminkainen, Symphony No 4 and 7, and a ton of other shit in headphones not unbuzzed. Finland for the win!
