New Sibelius music video released by cellist Jussi Makkonen

Iltalehti published a new music video by cellist Jussi Makkonen and pianist Nazig Azezian. The work is Sibelius Impromptu op. 5.5.

The music video can be viewed from the magazine’s website.

Video can also be found at cellist Jussi Makkonen YouTube channel.

Music video was filmed in the midsummer 2014 at Monola, Pielinen and Lieksa church. The video is a dreamy honeymoon to return Sibelius landscapes: the presence of the dream world and the Kalevala mystique that fascinated Jean Sibelius as a child. While staying in Ainola, Sibelius used to ask his grandchildren first thing in the morning, “What did you dream last night?”
