Maybe it really was the best decision to place Rautio both in the Russian-Soviet and in the Finnish section - for though he was a Soviet citizen all his life, the musical idiom of his symphony can hardly be labeled as Socialist realism. The land of Sibelius could not be far away where such music was composed. If Rautio is counted as Finnish because his father was, one might as well count Beethoven as Dutch or Stravinsky as Ukrainian. But I admit Rautio's musical language was definitely Finnish  Smiley
