Evangelicals and Art: Jean Sibelius

Jean Sibelius is one of the best known composers from Finland. His music is amazing and if you only have time for one work, I would suggest Finlandia. Sibelius’ music helped Finland find and discover its national identity as it dealt with independence from Russia. There are a lot of pieces to feature, but I put up a sample below. I hope you have a good weekend.

Finlandia

Karelia Suite

Valse Triste

Kullervo

The Swan of Tuonela
