Ondine is celebrating the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra's 125th anniversary with a disc featuring a fine collection of 12 Finnish orchestral gems newly recorded under the direction of chief conductor Leif Segerstam. The full colour booklet includes 18 carefully chosen photographs of typical Finnish landscapes, which illustrate the inspiration that the featured composers draw from their relationship with Finnish nature.

The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1882 and remains the oldest professional symphony orchestra in the Nordic countries. It gave the first performances of almost all the symphonic works by Jean Sibelius with the composer himself conducting.
