|IAF to hold discussion on Jean Sibelius’ place in Finnish music||
Professor Eero Tarasti of the University of Helsinki will deliver a speech about Finnish music and the great composer Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) during the event.
The session has been organized with the help of the Embassy of Finland in Tehran.
Sibelius was a Finnish composer of the late Romantic period. His music played an important role in the formation of the Finnish national identity.
The core of Sibelius’s oeuvre is his set of seven symphonies. Like Beethoven, Sibelius used each successive work to further develop his own personal compositional style. His works continue to be performed frequently in the concert hall and are often recorded.
