Heinio's Symphony No. 2 'Songs of Night and Love' is reminiscent more of a song cycle; it has a baritone soloist in each of its movements. The texts are based on sensual poems by Lassi Nummi. Night or love, or both together are fundamental themes running right through the symphony. Its dream-like landscapes are dominated by quiet and lyrical tones but the finale has the heat of the dark Mediterranean nights.
