Jean Sibelius Finnish composer
Jean Sibelius

Sibelius (1865-1957) was a Finnish composer of the late Romantic period. He is recognized as Finland’s greatest composer and is widely known for his heroic symphonies and beautiful symphonic poems, one of the most famous one being Finlandia composed in 1899. Many of his pieces are inspired by nature and Nordic mythology.

Due to the romantic nationalism of his music, Sibelius is often credited with having helped Finland to develop its own national identity and he has a reputation as a national hero.
