Sibelius - Kullervo

Kullervo by Sibelius is a group of five tone poems, only a couple of which have singing.  The first one, streamed on The Opera Project, was entirely ballet.  This is a youthful work published only toward the composer's death, and is in a form that was his personal favorite.  The story is pretty ghastly.
