The Lost Chord: December 5 - Pole Position
On the eve of Saint Nicholas Day, it’s a Christmas bait-and-switch, with plenty of Old World lore, but no actual Christmas music! Enjoy an imaginative journey to the domain of Joulupukki (literally “Yule Goat”) – the Finnish Santa Claus – and an evocative portrait of his stomping grounds. On the playlist will be “The White Reindeer” by Einar Englund, “Cantus Arcticus” by Einojuhani Rautavaara, and “Northern Lights” by Uuno Klami. Sample the sounds of Santa’s true home, on Korvatunturi (Ear Mountain), in Savukoski, Lapland. It’s guaranteed to get your goat, this Sunday at 10 pm.
