Hooray for Finland! Finnish-Canadian blogger Marja-Leena Rathje should be thrilled about Alex Ross's upcoming piece for The New Yorker on Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä (who is "rëälly gööd"). Alex's mathematical exploration of the significance of symphonic attendance in one Finnish town is just the latest reason why you should be reading his blog regularly. Marja-Leena and I have traded posts before on the subject of Finnish music:

Marja-Leena has taken the Finnish thing I suggested her for her anniversary and run with it. Go over to her blog. Now.
