Classical, contemporary and folk music from the Sibelius Festival and the 50th Anniversary of Finnish Independence Celebration in a series reviewing some of the current musical activity in Finland. The Sibelius Festival of 1965 and the 50th Anniversary Celebration of 1967 presented a considerable quantity of music by outstanding composers other than Sibelius and from a wide variety of historical periods. There are also several illustrated lectures documenting interesting aspects of today's Finnish musical culture. This third series of programs of music from Finland is based on recordings supplied by the Finnish broadcasting company for production by the University of Michigan.
Today's broadcast begins with two compositions for male choir by Jan Sibelius recorded in Festival Hall of Helsinki University during the Sibelius Festival. We will hear Vinimattka and Mitsumi and Laulu. The choirs are conducted by Insti Pojola.

Two songs for male choir by Jan Sibelius and Stip Pojola conducting. The remaining portion of today's broadcast will be devoted to the performance of a work for Chamber Ensemble composed by Erke Selmanhara, one of the most serious and dedicated representatives of the younger generation of Finnish composers. Selmanhara, born in 1941, studied at the Sibelius Academy and also with George Leggette.
In addition to his work as a composer, he is a research assistant in musicology at the University of Helsinki and a music critic. His early career as a composer was marked by a considerable experimentation in the smaller forms, but he has now begun to use the larger forms such as the symphony. His three symphonies, an impressive number for so young a person, unmistakably bringing together techniques he has learned from the works of Sibelius and his teacher Leggette. In Finland, Selmanhara is looked upon somewhat as a reformer of the symphonic form or idea and is one critic wrote he really believes in it as a vital and important musical vehicle. The work by this young composer to be heard today is a chamberpiece bearing the title Labbato Evre. It's unmistakably in the contemporary idiom, an idiom which could be described as contemporary impressionism. It was commissioned by the Finnish broadcasting company and we will hear its first performance recorded in the Hall of Knights in Helsinki.
