This is a  very rare composition, that recently appeared on youtube...enjoy!

Roine Rautio was born on July 20, 1934, in Petrozavodsk (Soviet Karelia) as the youngest of the three sons of Finnish-born composer Karl (or Kalle) Rautio, who had moved to Petrozavodsk in 1922, and who was to be become the author of the Karelo-Finnish Soviet Socialist Republic's state anthem. Successful and promising both as a composer and as a conductor, Roine Rautio died with his brother Heino on August 19, 1960, in a boat accident on Lake Onega.
This recording of his four-movement Symphony is ripped from an ultra-rare Melodiya LP, released in 1962. The Karelian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Aleksandr Dmitriev.

Fascinating ... if very derivative in places!
