Sibelius saw a flight of swans in the sunset and heard the tune that crowns his Fifth Symphony. Antonín Dvořák was overwhelmed by the power and beauty of the Niagara Falls and poured his feelings into a Cello Concerto as tender as it is passionate. And Thea Musgrave, a giant among Scottish composers, summons shimmering magic from an old Finnish myth. Tabita Berglund and soloist Torleif Thedéen take a journey to a place where nature, fantasy and emotion become one.
