Jean Sibelius  ( 1865-1957) the national composer of Finland and his works give an insight to Finnish identity andits formation. As a composer he presents the late Romantic period. The core of Sibelius's oeuvre is his set of seven symphonies.

Like Beethoven, Sibelius used each successive work to further develop his own personal compositional style. His works continue to be performed frequently in the concert halls all over the Globe. He is one of the most recorded artists in the World. His masterpiece Finlandia is played and sung every day in some part of the World. Jean Sibelius is historically and internationally the most famous Finn. His works inspire composers, conductors and touch every day thousands of people. The relation to nature of Finland and its people is tangible.

Sibelius Finland Experience  is not only a concert but also a cultural experience for anyone wanting to learn more about the Finnish mindset. Sit down conveniently for an hour to listen music in the heart of the city by the Senate Square with easy access. The show suites people in all ages. Children under 12 years have a free entry with accompanied adults.

The inspiring 45 minute concert presents Finland and Finnish identity. It is a high-quality live performance by some of the best musicians in Finland in co-operation with the world famous Sibelius Academy and supervised by Professor Erik T. Tawastsjerna as an artistic advisor. 

We welcome you, your guests and family to Kansallissali to experience the sound of violin and grand black Steinways on the scene.The narrated performance is a visual composition of beautiful images of Finland and selected graphic illustrations by Erik Bruun, Professor of Art and Design.
