Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fascinating and exhaustive study in all things Finnish, not just its most cherished composer. I am finding the book particularly helpful in unravelling the mysteries of Sibelius interpretation—sometimes it takes the unbiased honesty of an outsider (Ms. Goss is from the American state of Georgia) to quantify and put things into proper perspective for all of us to appreciate.”

(Andrew Litton Arts Desk)

“Goss’s Sibelius is the capstone of her years of careful research. It is extremely informative and engaging to read and should be studied by anyone interested in Sibelius, Finnish history, or the arts in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is the best work that explains the context of Sibelius’s life and career.”


(Carl Rahkone Notes)
