Product Description:
Jean Sibelius: A Giant from the North Video(VHS/DVD). Fueled by nationalism and a love of the northern European landscape, Jean Sibelius composed symphonies, tone poems, and other works that have had a profound influence on modern music. Using film clips, photographs, diaries, and even letters between Sibelius and his wife, Aino, this biographical program examines the music of Finland’s celebrated yet enigmatic composer. Sibelius scholar Robert Layton, critic Marc Vignal, conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen, and other experts discuss Sibelius’ career, while performances of Sibelius’ diverse and stylistically original compositions reveal the evolution of his musical repertoire. In Finnish with English subtitles. (90 minutes)
