In November 2011, EMI Classics will release a recording of Jukka-Pekka Saraste conducting the Nordea Jean Sibelius Orchestra, which was recorded in the new Helsinki Music Centre.

The album contains Sibelius’s Finlandia and Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture. The album also includes a fifteen-minute-long documentary Nordea Jean Sibelius Orchestra of the training activities, concerts and recording sessions from previous work. The CD marks EMI Classics’s first recording of Finnish music in twelve years.
