Our National Composer

Our National Composer is Jean Sibelius and his most known piece of music in Finland is ”Finlandia”. It was composed while Finland still was part of Russia, and it was forbidden to perform publicly. It is about oppression, fight and hope of a brighter future.

Here it is performed at the opening night of the new  Helsinki music hall

 

And here it’s the same music but you can see pictures from Finland meanwile
