Sibelius's greatest musical gifts were perhaps best revealed in his symphonies and symphonic poems, where his genius for thematic development and formal structure could find full expression. In such stirring tone poems as Finlandia, Pohjola's Daughter, and The Swan of Tuonela, he displayed his powerful ability to infuse his music with strong, tightly reined emotion. This finely made volume contains the definitive orchestral scores of all three of these classic works, along with five other masterly tone poems. Included are En Saga, The Swan of Tuonela, Lemminkäinen's Return, Finlandia, Valse Triste, Pohjola's Daugher, Night Ride and Sunrise, and The Oceanides. In these pages musicians and music lovers can study intimately Sibelius's highly individual musical personality at its most expressive in masterpieces that are among the most performed and recorded works in the orchestral repertoire.
