Voice of Nature

The poetic scenario in which the songs (Lieder) of Jean Sibelius take place is that of nature, of environments and men, but also of fairytale landscapes populated by unreal characters. The music is not subjugated to literature, Sibelius' intention was to bring to the concert halls the world of nature sung by Scandinavian authors, set in an atmosphere of sounds and colors that only music could provide.
