Introduction

To mark the start of the centenary of Finnish independence, the traditional Epiphany concert features classic songs from Finnish films – with love and about love. 

Love beneath weeping birches, on the edge of swaying fields, beside the roaring rapids… What would the love scenes in classic Finnish films be without music? The Epiphany concert of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra is presented by conductor Klaus Mäkelä and actor Pertti Sveholm.
