  • Sibelius: Kullervo Symphony - Los Angeles Philharmonic / Esa Pekka Salonen*

    1:10:23

    Still the best recording of Sibelius' Kullervo. Though Berglund's world premiere recording has something special, it cannot match Paavo Järvi's recording in the many original details in the orchestration. But both are lacking power in the final movement. Vänska's first recording of Kullervo is the most powerful with also a typical Sibelian part 2. But his recording is somewhat uneven: Part 1 and 4 are disappointing . Salonen takes a brisk tempo but has the advantage of the great orchestra and his performance is straightforward with numerous fine touches and also a powerful finale. The choir and the soloists are also excellent. Each part of this symphonic Poem comes over very well, so this is still my favourite....

    Kullervo, Op. 7 (1892)

    I. Introduction: Allegro moderato

    Kullervo is an early tone poem of symphonic proportions by Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957), scored for large orchestra, male choir, mezzo-soprano and baritone. The work deals with the tragic legend of Kullervo, setting portions of the text of the Kalevala, the national epic of Finland. According to the legend, Kullervo is the son of Kalervo and Untamala, the last surviving member of her clan. His uncle Untamo feuded with Kalervo and exterminated the entire clan, save for Untamala. As an infant, Kullervo is heard muttering threats of vengeance against Untamo, so his uncle tries to kill him. Kullervo only survives by virtue of his innate magical powers. Eventually, the young Kullervo is sold as a slave to the shepherd Ilmarinen. After years of servitude, one day Kullervo angrily casts a spell on Ilmarinen's cows, which turns them into bears that kill the shepherd's wife. Kullervo promptly flees the scene and embarks on a quest to find his family. He finds that some members of his tribe survived, but his sister disappeared and probably died. Kullervo then leaves on an errand for his tribe, and on the way he meets a beggar-girl, whom he ravishes. It turns out that this is his long-lost sister, and when they discover this, she commits suicide. Kullervo returns to his tribe with the bad news and decides to redeem himself by exacting revenge on the wicked Untamo. The sky-goddess Ukko supplies him with a magic sword, which he uses to kill Untamo and his entire clan. When he returns from this bloody endeavour, Kullervo finds his own family massacred as well. In anguish, he asks his magic sword to take his life. The sword answers affirmatively and Kullervo falls upon it, ending his own life.

    Sir Colin Davis gave three sets of performances of Sibelius' epic Kullervo. Two of these performances were issued as commercial discs: in 1992, issued by RCA and 2005 issued by LSO LIVE. Sir Colin's interpretation speeded up significantly between the two with almost ten minutes' difference. This third performance was given in the Barbican Hall in June 1997, with soloists Hillevi Martinpelto and Karl-Magnus Fredriksson, with the LSO and Chorus under Sir Colin; some two minutes faster than his previous one.

    In this video Johanna Rusanen and Ville Rusanen, brothers and sisters in real life, are reflecting their roles in Sibelius' Kullervo in the new recording by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and conductor Hannu Lintu. While still a student, Sibelius was pondering whether to become a symphonist or a composer of operas. Kullervo is a work where these two worlds meet each other.

    Jean Sibelius' Kullervo is a gigantic 5-movement work with duration of over 70 minutes written for soprano, baritone, choir and orchestra which marked the young Sibelius' breakthrough as a composer.

    III. Kullervo and His Sister: Allegro vivace (conclusion)

    Kullervo is an early tone poem of symphonic proportions by Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957), scored for large orchestra, male choir, mezzo-soprano and baritone. The work deals with the tragic legend of Kullervo, setting portions of the text of the Kalevala, the national epic of Finland. According to the legend, Kullervo is the son of Kalervo and Untamala, the last surviving member of her clan. His uncle Untamo feuded with Kalervo and exterminated the entire clan, save for Untamala. As an infant, Kullervo is heard muttering threats of vengeance against Untamo, so his uncle tries to kill him. Kullervo only survives by virtue of his innate magical powers. Eventually, the young Kullervo is sold as a slave to the shepherd Ilmarinen. After years of servitude, one day Kullervo angrily casts a spell on Ilmarinen's cows, which turns them into bears that kill the shepherd's wife. Kullervo promptly flees the scene and embarks on a quest to find his family. He finds that some members of his tribe survived, but his sister disappeared and probably died. Kullervo then leaves on an errand for his tribe, and on the way he meets a beggar-girl, whom he ravishes. It turns out that this is his long-lost sister, and when they discover this, she commits suicide. Kullervo returns to his tribe with the bad news and decides to redeem himself by exacting revenge on the wicked Untamo. The sky-goddess Ukko supplies him with a magic sword, which he uses to kill Untamo and his entire clan. When he returns from this bloody endeavour, Kullervo finds his own family massacred as well. In anguish, he asks his magic sword to take his life. The sword answers affirmatively and Kullervo falls upon it, ending his own life.
