Terttu Aulikki Rautawaara (May 2, 1906, Vaasa - December 29, 1990, Helsinki) was a Finnish soprano. She was famous for her interpretation of works by Edvard Grieg and Jean Sibelius, including some of the first recordings of Sibelius made outside Scandinavia. She played the part of Countess Almaviva in Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, in the first ever opera performed at the Glyndebourne festival (1934), and continued to play a number of parts in operas staged in Glyndebourne in the 1930s.

Aulikki Rautawaara (1906–1990) as a performer of Jean Sibelius’ songs is the subject of my doctoral thesis. What songs by Sibelius Rautawaara performed, in what kind of situations she performed them, how she interpreted them and how her work was received are the central questions.
Jean Sibelius Composer. Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. Edward Gardner Conductor. In the Stream of Life. Jean Sibelius Composer. Gerald Finley (bbar). Sibelius’s art song accompaniments habitually imply fuller textures yet he himself scored relatively few for larger forces, posing problems of authenticity for determined advocates like Gerald Finley. I can’t recall a high-profile disc of orchestrally accompanied Sibelius songs since that of Soile Isokoski (Ondine, 7/06) and you have to look back to the mid-Nineties for a similar miscellany featuring a male soloist: Jorma Hynninen, again with Leif Segerstam directing for the same label. Devised in 1909, reconstructed in 1945 and rededicated to Aulikki Rautawaara (sic), the composer’s cousin, it is given in its original English.
