Lemminkainen

Audio will be available later today.

Always listen to your mother — that's advice the legendary Finnish figure Lemminkainen might have wanted to take. But he thought he knew better, and got into trouble for his antics. We hear Lemminkainen and the Maidens of Saari, set to music by Jean Sibelius, and performed by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and conductor Arvo Volmer in Reykjavik.
