The discussion in the Tapiola thread shown that many people here in the forum are not familiar with Sibelius' music and would like to know more about the composer and his works.
A discussion about Tapiola is hardly the right place for it, since it (along with his 4th symphony) constitute the hardest music Sibelius ever wrote. I would never recommend the piece for anyone but the biggest fan of the composer.
Anyway, I was surprised to discover that Sibelius is almost non existent in this forum. I don't know why is that so, but it's a pity, and I'm starting this discussion to remedy that.
So let's talk some Sibelius, for the benefit of all the readers who would like to start listening to his music, or want to dig deeper into this amazing repertoire. What's your favorite pieces? What performances will you recommend? Let's talk all things Sibelius.
