Written in 1892, En saga takes its place at the beginning of Jean Sibelius's symphonic poems, and is also the first orchestral work by the Finnish composer to have won a lasting place in the concert repertoire. After ten years and many successful performances, Sibelius was still unsatisfied with his work, which ultimately led him to radically shorten and revise the score. From then on, the revised version - published in 1903 - was the only valid one.
bekanntesten Werken von Jean Sibelius. Die Tondichtung Finlandia op. 26 entstand im Herbst 1899 als Schlussstuck der ,,Musik zu den Pressefeiern. In seiner endgultigen Form wurde Finlandia dann 2. Juli 1900 in Helsinki uraufgefuhrt.

Die Bearbeitung fur Orgel von Herbert Austin Fricker (EB 2322) erschien bereits im September 1907 bei Breitkopf & Hartel. played and best known works by Jean Sibelius. The tone poem Finlandia op. 26 was written in fall 1899 as the closing piece of the Music for the Press Celebrations. Finlandia was given its first performance in its final form in Helsinki on 2 July 1900.

Herbert Austin Fricker's arrangement for organ (EB 2322) was published by Breitkopf & Hartel in September 1907. Unklar bleibt warum Sibelius etwa zeitgleich eine weitere Fassung des Werks nur mit deutschem Text fur Singstimme und Streichorchester anfertigte. Soweit bekannt wurde diese Fassung vor ihrer erstmaligen Veroffentlichung im Jahr 2003 in der Gesamtausgabe ,,Jean Sibelius Werke (JSW) noch nicht aufgefuhrt. It remains uncertain why Sibelius wrote another version of the work with German text only for voice and string orchestra around the same time. As far as is known this latter version has never been performed before its first publication in the volume of the complete edition Jean Sibelius Works in 2003. In den meisten Fallen beschrankte sich Sibelius auf ein relativ kleines Orchester. In ,,Varen flyktar hastigt sind neben den Streichern nur zwei Floten und vier Horner besetzt.

Nearly all of the orchestral arrangements were made years after the original compositions for voice and piano. Yet even though the arrangements were made in a very short period of time Sibelius handled the combination of solo voice and orchestra in all songs with equal mastery sometimes creating dark and dramatic atmospheres (in Pa verandan vid havet) sometimes radiant colorful impressions (in Soluppgang) or light-colored transparent textures (in Varen flyktar hastigt) and always basing his ideas on the poetic idea of the song while discovering refined ways of supporting it.
