The Musical Contemplations of J.Sibelius
Jean Sibelius, born Johan Julius Christian Sibelius on December 8, 1865 in Finland, is considered Scandinavia’s most significant symphonist and one of the last great romantics. While the core of his oeuvre is undoubtedly his set of seven symphonies, his other works cannot be ignored, especially his Violin concerto, given that he himself was an accomplished violinist. In all, and in addition to the aforementioned works, he is also known for his tone poems, the more than 100 songs for voice and piano, his incidental music for numerous plays and others. Throughout his career, the composer found inspiration in nature and Nordic mythology, especially the heroic legends of Finland’s national epic, the Kalevala.
