He wrote his First Symphony, attended its frenetically applauded premiere in Helsinki, and subsequently accompanied the orchestra of the world premiere to the Universal Exhibition in Paris. There - and elsewhere as well, especially in central Europe - the work brought him his first international triumphs and encouraged him in his compositional path. Since the E minor Symphony has maintained its place in the repertoire to this day, no time has been lost in releasing the Urtext performance material based on the corresponding volume of the Complete Edition. While the conducting score can be purchased, the orchestral material continues to be available on hire. Jarnefelts Drama Kuolema (Der Tod) hervorgegangen. Nach den ersten szenischen Auffuhrungen im Dezember 1903 am Finnischen Nationaltheater in Helsinki erweiterte Sibelius die ursprungliche Streicherbesetzung durch Blaser und Pauken. In dieser Form erklang das Werk erstmals am 25. April 1904 unter Leitung des Komponisten im Festsaal der Universitat Helsinki - und trat mit diesem Tag seinen Siegeszug um die musikalische Welt an. Arvid Jarnefelt's drama Kuolema (Death). After the first staged performances in December 1903 at the Finnish National Theater in Helsinki Sibelius expanded the original string scoring by adding winds and timpani. It is in this form that the work was first heard at the University of Helsinki's festival hall on 25 April 1904 under the direction of the composer.
