This new release pays tribute to Finnish superstar Karita Mattila on the occasion of her 50th birthday in September 2010.

This DVD features a recital performance which Karita Mattila gave to a compatriot audience at the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki, in October 2006. International critics praised the recorded sell-out concerts: “Karita Mattila at her glorious peak… No wonder the Helsinki audience went berserk.” (Daily Telegraph)

This is the much-awaited first-ever release of the Helsinki Recital on DVD and includes previously unreleased encore material. The original sound recording of the Helsinki Recital, released as a hybrid SACD in June 2007, garnered the highest accolades throughout the international press, including BBC Music Magazine ‘Song Choice’ and Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’.

Includes Encores:
- Golden Earrings (from the motion picture, 1947)
- Traditional (Finnish): Minun kultani kaunis on

This product includes a free bonus CD compilation featuring Karita Mattila and pianist Ilmo Ranta with German and Finnish standard repertoire Lied songs (Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Sibelius, Kuula, Melartin).

Recorded live at the Finnish National Opera, Helsinki, 1 & 8 October 2006.
