Post-war Finland was taken over by rhythm music and translated hits once import restrictions on recordings were abolished in the 1950s. Many of the most popular hit songs came from Italy. The UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra will wrap up the audience on this autumn evening in jazz-inspired interpretations of hits, films scores and nostalgia.
