Died: , Järvenpää. Sibelius () was Finland's leading post-Romantic composer of symphonies and a national icon, regarded as the foremost Nordic symphonist of the 20th century. Few composers dominate their country’s music more completely than Jean Sibelius (). His emergence as a composer of international stature in the first decades of the 20th century went hand. Jean Sibelius, original name Johan Julius Christian Sibelius, (born Dec. 8, , Hämeenlinna, Fin.—died Sept. 20, , Järvenpää), Finnish composer, the most noted symphonic composer of Scandinavia.
Although he retired very early on, he continued working on his carols continually until a few years before he passed away in His efforts were awarded by the Finnish Senate when they awarded him a pension of 3, marks to consolidate his status as a national artist.
Finlandia was originally titled Suomi herää , which when translated is Finland Awakens when it was first debuted.
Sibelius had attained such critical acclaim by the mids. He completed his Seventh Symphony in and he also worked on the incidental music for the Tempest in and the poem Tapiola in the same year.
After , Sibelius opted to take a break and he did not produce large-scale works for the remaining 30 years that he was alive. Although he did not produce ant public works, it is said that he tried to come up with new pieces including an apparent eight symphony.
Sibelius played such a vital role in society that when he turned 70, a banquet was thrown in his honor and it was attended by all the previous living presidents of Finland, as well as prime ministers from neighboring countries Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
It is located in a park that is appropriately named the Sibelius Park in the Töölö District. The monument was erected and unveiled in with the aim of not only honoring the music of Sibelius but also to inspire future generations of Finnish composers.
The wooden house that he was born in located at his hometown is also currently a museum and is a beloved place of pilgrimage for all international fans of Jean Sibelius.
Despite his musical genius, Sibelius battled many health problems in his lifetime including issues with alcoholism.
He is reported to have arrived ridiculously drunk during his sixth symphony in Sweden during his performance and he was unable to conduct properly.
As a result of his drinking problem, Sibelius had many throat tumors but underwent successful surgery to remove them.

An instant success, it took on a life of its own, and remains one of Sibelius's signature pieces. After substantial revisions, a new version was premiered on 19 October with Richard Strauss conducting the Berlin Court Orchestra.
Kullervo , one of Sibelius's early works, is sometimes referred to as a choral symphony but is better described as a suite of five symphonic movements resembling tone poems.
Although the work was only performed five times during the composer's lifetime, since the s it has become increasingly popular both for live performances and recordings.
When Freemasonry was revived in Finland, having been forbidden under the Russian reign, Sibelius was one of the founding members of Suomi Lodge No.
He composed the ritual music used in Finland Op. The new revision of the ritual music of is one of his last works.
Sibelius loved nature, and the Finnish landscape often served as material for his music. He once said of his Sixth Symphony, "[It] always reminds me of the scent of the first snow.
On the subject of Sibelius's ties to nature, his biographer, Tawaststjerna, wrote:. Even by Nordic standards, Sibelius responded with exceptional intensity to the moods of nature and the changes in the seasons: he scanned the skies with his binoculars for the geese flying over the lake ice, listened to the screech of the cranes, and heard the cries of the curlew echo over the marshy grounds just below Ainola.
He savoured the spring blossoms every bit as much as he did autumnal scents and colours. Sibelius exerted considerable influence on symphonic composers and musical life, at least in English-speaking and Nordic countries.
The Finnish symphonist Leevi Madetoja was a pupil of Sibelius for more on their relationship, see Relationship with Sibelius.
In Britain, Vaughan Williams and Arnold Bax both dedicated their fifth symphonies to Sibelius. Furthermore, Tapiola is prominently echoed in both Bax's Sixth Symphony and Moeran's Symphony in G Minor.
Walton's composer friend Constant Lambert even asserted that Sibelius was "the first great composer since Beethoven whose mind thinks naturally in terms of symphonic form".
More recently, Sibelius was also one of the composers championed by Robert Simpson. Malcolm Arnold acknowledged his influence, and Arthur Butterworth also saw Sibelius's music as a source of inspiration in his work.
New Zealand's most accomplished 20th century composer, Douglas Lilburn , wrote of the inspiration he derived from Sibelius's work, particularly for his earlier compositions.
Eugene Ormandy and to a lesser extent, his predecessor with the Philadelphia Orchestra Leopold Stokowski , were instrumental in bringing Sibelius's music to American audiences by frequently programming his works; the former developed a friendly relationship with Sibelius throughout his life.
Later in life, Sibelius was championed by the American critic Olin Downes , who wrote a biography of the composer. In Theodor Adorno wrote a critical essay, notoriously charging that "If Sibelius is good, this invalidates the standards of musical quality that have persisted from Bach to Schoenberg : the richness of inter-connectedness, articulation, unity in diversity, the 'multi-faceted' in 'the one'.
Perhaps one reason Sibelius has attracted both the praise and the ire of critics is that in each of his seven symphonies he approached the basic problems of form, tonality, and architecture in unique, individual ways.
On the one hand, his symphonic and tonal creativity was novel, while others thought that music should be taking a different route.
No statue has ever been put up to a critic. In the latter decades of the twentieth century, Sibelius became seen more favourably: Milan Kundera said the composer's approach was that of "antimodern modernism," standing outside the perpetual progression of the status quo.
Writing in , the Pulitzer Prize -winning music critic Tim Page stated, "There are two things to be said straightaway about Sibelius.
First, he is terribly uneven much of his chamber music, a lot of his songs and most of his piano music might have been churned out by a second-rate salon composer from the 19th century on an off afternoon.
Second, at his very best, he is often weird. Acknowledging that this body of work is uneven in quality, Andsnes believes that the common critical dismissal is unwarranted.
In performing selected piano works, Andsnes finds that audiences were "astonished that there could be a major composer out there with such beautiful, accessible music that people don't know.
With 8 December being the th anniversary of Sibelius's birth, the Helsinki Music Centre has planned an illustrated and narrated "Sibelius Finland Experience Show" every day during the summer of The production is also planned to extend over and In , Sibelius's surviving daughters sold Ainola to the State of Finland.
The Ministry of Education and the Sibelius Society of Finland opened it as a museum in The Finnish mark bill featured his image until when the euro was adopted.
The quinquennial International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition , instituted in , the Sibelius Monument , unveiled in in Helsinki's Sibelius Park, the Sibelius Museum , opened in Turku in , and the Sibelius Hall concert hall in Lahti, opened in , were all named in his honour, as was the asteroid Sibelius.
When finished, this critical edition will comprise 60 volumes. Sibelius kept a diary in —, and his family allowed it to be published, unabridged, in The diary was edited by Fabian Dahlström and published in the Swedish language in The popular scorewriter program, Sibelius , is named after him.
Parts of the literary estate of Sibelius—correspondence and manuscripts—are preserved at the National Archives of Finland and National Library of Finland , but several items are in foreign private collections, even as investments, only partially accessible for scholars.
In , a lot of 50 music manuscript items was acquired by the National Library with aid from the State of Finland, banks and foundations.
