Travel with Music" Come on, let's travel with music!
The first piece, Finlandia, is by Sibelius, one of Finland's most famous composers. Finland, the land of forests and lakes and the home of Santa Claus and the Moomins, was ruled by Sweden from around the 12th century and under Russian oppression from the 18th century onward. The beautiful melody of the middle part of Finlandia is known as the "Finlandia Hymn" and is considered to be Finland's second national anthem.
The second piece is Mozart's Symphony No. 38, "Prague. The Old Town of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, has many beautiful medieval buildings and is the only city in the world where the entire city is registered as a World Heritage Site. It was also the location for the movie "Amadeus" about Mozart. Mozart's opera "The Marriage of Figaro" was a big hit in Prague. Mozart's opera "The Marriage of Figaro" was a big hit in Prague, and the composer premiered his Symphony No. 38 when he was invited to Prague by the city's government, which was eagerly awaiting his visit. The opera "The Marriage of Figaro" contained a ridiculing comment on the aristocracy, which may have lowered the spirits of the people of Prague, which was ruled by the Habsburgs at the time.
The third piece is Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 2. Tchaikovsky was fond of Kamyanka, Ukraine, where his sister Alexandra was married, and visited there often. And because he incorporated Ukrainian folk songs into this work, a friend of Tchaikovsky's dedicated the nickname "Little Russia" (one of the old names for Ukraine). Tchaikovsky wrote many other works during his stay in Kamyanka. For Tchaikovsky, the Kamyanka must have been like a fountainhead for his works.
