At the end of the piece, it finally achieves the full force that it has been hinting at throughout the finale: Joy! Freude! The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra traditionally concludes its autumn season around the winter solstice with a bright message of joy. Bruno Weil is the perfect conductor to lead the orchestra, the Helsinki Music Centre Choir and guest soloists on our journey back into the light!
