The biography of Jean Sibelius by François Hudry , illustrated by Myriam Nion and accompanied by 2 compact discs.
“It was the ideas that I liked the most that I rejected the most.
Perhaps I did my hardest work on works that were never finished!”
Thanks to his particular genius, Sibelius achieved the feat of creating a work deeply anchored in the national soil of Finland while having a universal scope. The strength and originality of his language, the intensity of the lyricism, the inimitable orchestral color, the epic and telluric power of expression of his music can only conquer a growing audience.
The two CDs that accompany this album take us into the composer's world, through the legendary interpreters of the Finnish composer.
