This booklet presents the home of Jean and Aino Sibelius. The text provides a guide to the museum and only touches briefly on the personal history and life’s work of Jean Sibelius. After the death of their parents in 1972 Aino Sibelius’s daughters sold most of the property and its buildings to the Finnish State, including the complete interiors, furniture, works of art and the library with its collection of published music. The home was converted into a museum opening in 1974, and the interior was kept as it was during Jean and Aino Sibelius’s time.

Andy Pape, born in California in 1955, came to Denmark at the age of fifteen. With his chamber opera The Great Houdini, Pape had an unusual musical breakthrough in 1988. His catalogue as a composer includes instrumental theatre compositions as well as orchestral and chamber music with a fondness for distinctive instrument combinations and frequent use of percussion. This opera was conceived after Pape was captivated by the sound of two women’s voices together, Maria Stenz and Edith Guillaume. Although they were trained in seperate traditions (classical opera and the chanson/cabaret tradition), he thought they sounded extraordinarily good together.

Deh 2 contains traditional yoiks, Sami chants, from Deatnu (Tana or Teno). The Yoiker is 76 year old Ivvar Niillas. Other than a singer, he is a reindeer herder, salmon fisher, a hunter, and a peasant farmer. Yoik is the Sami, Laplandic way, of singing or chanting. There are yoiks for persons, animals, and landscapes. The musical modus of yoiks is totally different from what is known in Euro-American music. Some say that yoiks are the oldest musical tradition still alive in Europe.

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) Piano Concerto in A minor, Op.16 1. I. Allegro molto moderato 2. II. Adagio 3. III. Attacca Karol Szymanowski (1882-1937) Symphony No.4 Op.60 “Sinfonia concertante” for piano and orchestra 4. I. Moderato (Tempo commodo) 5. II. Andante molto sostenuto 6. III. Allegro non troppo ma agitato ad ausioso This coupling of the well-known Grieg piano concerto with the rarely heard Szymanowski symphony makes sense when one realizes that the latter, in three movements, is subtitled "Sinfonia concertante" for piano and orchestra. Among the folk sources from which Szymanowski drew in the work was the vigorous fiddle music of the Tatra region of Poland. The pianist is a Chilean who has developed an international reputation and has recorded extensively for Arte Nova.
