Jean sibelius sibelius - osmo vänskä vänskä sibelius - lahti - vänskä

The young British soprano Mary Bevan and the Renaissance-man pianist Joseph Middleton have assembled a beautiful programme focusing on settings of Baudelaire and Goethe.

Similarly to the Karelia Suite , the original Press Celebrations Music suite was never originally released under Sibelius' supervision, but after almost 99 years with the sheet music untouched, the suite was reconstructed and released on two different CDs, the first one by the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra in 1998, conducted by Tuomas Ollila, [7] and the second by the Lahti Symphony Orchestra in 2000, conducted by Osmo Vänskä. [8] [9] The last 2 movements of the suite were later reworked to become Finlandia [3]

And yet the so-called “regional” composers left an imposing body of work, which is integral to the century as a whole. Their music may lack the vanguard credentials of Schoenberg’s or Stravinsky’s, at least on the sonic surface, but Nielsen, in his 1925 book “Living Music,” makes a good counter-argument: “The simplest is the hardest, the universal the most lasting, the straightest the strongest, like the pillars that support the dome.” And, precisely because these composers communicated general feelings of mourning for a pre-technological past, or, more simply, a yearning for vanished youth, they remained acutely relevant for a broad public.

The Sibelius Museum is the only museum totally devoted to music in Finland. The museum building, designed by Woldemar Baeckman, is one of the most original Finnish creations of the 1960s. A selection taken from the approx. 2 000 instruments of traditional and art musics from all around the globe is exhibited. One room is naturally reserved for Sibelius´s life and work. During the fall and spring seasons the museum’s Wednesday concert series offers musical experiences of various genres. Apart from it’s collection on Jean Sibelius, the archive of the Sibelius Museum owns a  large collection of different material connected to music, . sheet music, photos and sound recordings. The Sibelius Museum and it’s collections is an interesting site to both experts and ordinary music lovers.

It's exciting and emotional, packed with grand melodies and dramatic explosions. Sibelius gives each of the instrumental groups in the orchestra a chance to shine, and when brought together the orchestra becomes a spectacular powerhouse. It's compelling listening.
