Paavo Berglund
Finnish conductor
Paavo Berglund
Paavo Allan Engelbert Berglund was a Finnish conductor. Born in Helsinki, Berglund studied the violin as a child, and played an instrument made by his grandfather. By age 15, he had decided on music as his career, and by 18 was playing in restaurants. He joined the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra (Finnish RSO) in 1949, unique among the instrumentalists in being accommodated for seating to account for the fact that he was left-handed.

WHEN he was preparing to record Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto with Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 2000, the pianist Krystian Zimerman closely examined the original manuscript in Philadelphia.

Counting His Sabbatical's Blessings

In the late spring of 2000, as performing artists everywhere were heading off to summer music festivals, the acclaimed young Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, surprisingly, was not among them. Instead, he went to a snow-bound wooden house way above the Hardanger fjord in southwest Norway, about a three-hour drive from Bergen, a lot of it uphill.

Finland's Forte
NYTimes - about 17 years
After the shattering final chords of Jean Sibelius's symphonic poem ''Kullervo'' had died away, there was a shimmer of silence before the applause began. It was the sign of a good performance -- and of a good audience. This was one of the last concerts of the 1999 Helsinki Festival, and I was part of a large crowd gathered inside the handsome

I KNOW one festival city I want to visit this season: Bergen, in the latter part of May. I don't know much about Bergen. According to the atlas, it's some way up the Norwegian coast, around the corner from Oslo. It probably has a quaint district of old timbered houses going down to the quayside, where an early morning fish market takes place. No

The 'Rach 3' Can Be Rock or Rack

MUSIC REVIEW; 2 Finnish Pictures, One Bleak, One Bright

Sounds draw no pictures and induce no smells, but it is difficult to listen to Joonas Kokkonen's First Symphony and not come away with a specific sense of place. Mr. Kokkonen is Finnish and wrote this terse three-movement piece between 1958 and 1960. The New York Philharmonic under Paavo Berglund played it at Avery Fisher Hall on Thursday evening.
