Scandinavia is always one of my favourite destinations for a number of reasons. First of all, I like the cleanliness of the atmosphere which certainly helps to keep one fresh at the end of a long day. Then on some days it gives that incredible clarity and luminosity so admired by artists and which in turn may have led to the clean lines of Scandinavian design. The striking memorial to Sibelius is a tribute to both Finnish design and her most famous musician. In fact, ‘Finlandia’ is the first piece of classical music I can remember and 1 first heard it on earphones using a crystal set. In those days virtually all receivers were hand made, even to hand‐wound coils. Loud‐speakers were an expensive rarity.
