It is hard to imagine that the most frequently played Sibelius symphony of today triggered aesthetic controversies after its first performances in Finland. Jean Sibelius achieved international recognition with his Second Symphony. This work, his most frequently performed symphony to this day, opened the series of orchestral works within the Complete Edition Jean Sibelius Works. In his introduction, Kari Kilpelainen, the author of the comprehensive source catalogue The Jean Sibelius Musical Manuscripts at Helsinki University Library (BV 270), quotes previously unknown correspondence relating both to the origin of the Second Symphony as well as to the first performances, which triggered aesthetic controversies in Finland.
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 - before it set out to conquer the musical world.
