Indeed, thanks for the recommendation of the Spano.

I bought the Osmo Vanska/Lahti SO version on BIS relatively recently and the Esa-Pekka Salonen/Los Angeles SO version on Sony some years ago and have been very impressed by both.

I do often think that a Finnish conductor, orchestra and chorus have a special insight into the sound world. Now I have never been a particular admirer of Jukka-Pekka Saraste but his Kullervo has received glowing praise from many critics. Here he is with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra in 2002. I shall be most interested in your comments Smiley
