Informed by a wealth of information that has come to light in recent years, this engaging biography provides the fullest account of the significant achievement of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). Drawing on Sibelius's correspondence and diaries, contemporary reviews, and the remarks of family and friends, the book presents a rich account of the events of the musician's life. In addition, this volume is the first to set every work and performable fragment by Sibelius in its historical and musical context, and provides the first accurate information about much of the composer's early music. Andrew Barnett, who studied at Worcester College, Oxford, is founder and chairman of the UK Sibelius Society. He is project advisor to BIS Records' Complete Sibelius Edition and has advised and written extensively for the International Sibelius Festival in Lahti.
