Me too - I have a framed print of Lake Keitele in my 'Man Cave' at the bottom of the garden.
I'm currently thoroughly enjoying this CD. I've had it in my collection for years without realising how good it is:


It is quite good. I'm a fan of Sakari's Sibelius, which I've heard described as "Vänskä-lite".

I'm just coming to the end of the 7th Symphony. There's a kind of openness and unmannered integrity about the performances which I find very engaging.
