Jean Sibelius was Finland's most famous composer at the beginning of the 20th Century. Now Finland is the leader in classical music exports, from players to composers and conductors. NPR's Julie McCarthy talks to classically minded Fins, from orchestra performers to composers: Magnus Lindberg, Arttu Takolo, and Einojuhani Rautavaara (11:00).
