With the world premiere of Kullervo in 1892, Jean Sibelius staked his claim at the age of 27 to the front ranks of the symphonists of his day, long before he began writing his purely instrumental symphonies and tone poems. No longer just a facsimile: Sibelius's Symphony No. 0 in a proper edition

With the world premiere of Kullervo in 1892, Jean Sibelius staked his claim at the age of 27 to the front ranks of the symphonists of his day, long before he began writing his purely instrumental symphonies and tone poems. At the same time, he defined himself as a modern-day Finnish composer through his choice of the text from the Kalevala epic, whose title role he interpreted with modern psychological means. By the time Sibelius was celebrating his major international triumphs in the early 20th century, his Symphony No. 0 was long forgotten. After a provisory first edition of Kullervo in 1966, the work quickly gained the esteem of Sibelius conductors who also performed the work with the Finnish vocal text outside of their native country. Yet in spite of pioneer recordings such as those of Paavo Berglund, Colin Davis, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Osmo Vanska, the grandiose work had not been adequately present in international concert life up to now - not least because there was no practicable edition. The volumes of the Complete Edition edited by Glenda Dawn Goss now offer a musicologically accurate music text for the first time. This music text forms the basis for the performance material. The complete edition Jean Sibelius Werke intends to pave the way for a new evaluation of the Finnish composer and, in particular, of this hitherto editorially neglected work, the composer's only choral symphony.



Der Notentext der Studienpartitur geht auf Band VIII/1 der Gesamtausgabe ,,Jean Sibelius Werke zuruck. Dort befinden sich die ausfuhrliche Einleitung sowie der ,,Critical Commentary (in englischer Sprache) zu diesem Werk. Luonnotar is the last of the tone poems based directly on the Kalevala. Sibelius himself chose the text. It does not form any clear and unified whole nor does it outline a plot. Rather than telling a story the text gives a series of impressions a kind of Finnish version of the creation of the world.

The music text of the study score is based on Volume VIII/1 of the Complete Edition ,,Jean Sibelius Works. This volume also contains a detailed introduction of the work as well as a Critical Commentary in English.
Fast alle Orchesterbearbeitungen sind Jahre nach den Originalkompositionen fur Singstimme und Klavier entstanden. Trotz der Tatsache dass sie rasch hingeworfen sind zeigt sich in allen Liedern Sibelius' Meisterschaft als Orchesterliederkomponist. manchmal vermag er eine dustere dramatische Atmosphare (in ,,Pa verandan vid havet) zu erzeugen manchmal gelingen ihm leuchtend farbige Impressionen (in ,,Soluppgang) oder zart transparente Gewebe (in ,,Varen flyktar hastigt) - immer jedoch sind die Lieder ganz aus deren poetischer Idee heraus gestaltet und differenziert nachgezeichnet. 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.

ONDINE Ode 823-2 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. In most cases Sibelius used a comparatively small orchestra: Varen flyktar hastigt has only two flute and four horns added to the strings.
