The attempt to draw a complete picture is carried out impressively, with a critical basis that is seldom present in such portraits. KLASSISK MUSIKKMAGASIN (C)arefully details Sibelius's life and provides a richly painted portrait of the world around the composer. (...) will be a source for Sibelius scholars for many years to come. (...) Recommended. CHOICE (W)ith its exhaustive archival underpinning and determination not to short-circuit complex issues, the book is unlikely to be challenged (...) for quite some time. MUSICAL TIMES Tomi Mäkelä has assembled a vast amount of referential material (...) free from stridency and polemic, keen to raise questions (...) and genuinely interested in an enthralling subject. I found myself responding with increasing pleasure and respect. BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE (Malcolm Hayes) Mäkelä provides thought-provoking historical and cultural insights. His exceptionally thorough research draws on a wide range of source materials that is wider than usual, including some rarely tapped sources close to Sibelius himself. UK SIBELIUS SOCIETY NEWSLETTER Mäkelä is creating a notably elaborate artistic and intellectual context in which to assess Sibelius's unique - 'visionary, ecstatic, imagination based' - creative urge.
