Leevi Madetoja, Pohjalaisia : (The Ostrobothnians)
Leevi Madetoja (1887 – 1947) was an outstanding symphonist and his third symphony in particular is one of the finest Finnish works in the genre. His symphonies as well as his other orchestral works reveal his keen sense for orchestral colours and also his structural mastery. Among his oeuvre are also a number of highly individual songs.
