About this course:

The musical compositions of Jean Sibelius have long been a staple of symphonic repertory and a favorite of audiences throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Born in the year 1865, Sibelius is considered by many to be Finland’s most important composer. Coming at the tail end of the long nineteenth century, he is especially known for a musical style that continues to develop the Romantic tradition, all the while exploring nationalistic Finnish themes from sources such as the Kalevala. In this course, we explore Sibelius’ most important musical works such as the famous violin concerto, the symphonies, piano pieces, songs, and the tone poems, including the Lemminkäinen Suite, Tapiola, and Finlandia.
