Description - Sibelius Orchestral Works by David Hurwitz
John Sibelius was not only considered Finland's greatest composer, he was one of the most distinctive and appealing musical voices in the first half of the 20th century. His example led to an unprecedented cultural flowering in his homeland. "Sibelius, Orchestral Works" examines over 80 individual orchestral pieces, from songs and choruses to symphonies, overtures, and theatrical music. Accompanied by two full-length audio CDs, this volume offers a unique opportunity to hear Sibelius in context and gain an understanding of what distinguished him from his contemporaries, and how he became the musical spokesperson of an entire nation. The two accompanying audio CDs include two complete symphonies and two of his most acclaimed tone poems.
