I wish Sir Mark my warmest birthday greetings.
I enjoyed your performance of two Sibelius works at the RAM earlier this year and our subsequent correspondence in which you said you are invited to conduct Sibelius in Helsinki. I know Finland will enjoy your special qualities in Sibelius as shown in your cycle of his symphonies.
