Its theme has been regarded as "the musical symbol of Finland, Sibelius's native country" Ostrowsky. This is a fairy-tale march slightly reminiscent of Grieg with a middle section which was very dear to Sibelius. Sibelius was very pleased with this section; we found it extremely lovely and could not get enough of it. In those days his music was new and strange, but we immediately understood these Impromptus and enjoyed them enormously. Here we have a melancholy fairy tale based on the alternation and repetition of two motifs.

Note the left hand imitation of the second theme, which first appears in the treble. A sweetly rocking salon waltz with a second section in E minor. Sonata in F major, op. First performance by Oskar Merikanto, 17th April Helsinki. Sibelius's only piano sonata has often been condemned as being essentially a piano arrangement of an orchestral work.

But in the opinion of one of the founders of the Finnish piano school, Ilmari Hannikainen a student of the Russian master Alexander Siloti, who in turn was a student of Liszt , "the F major Piano sonata is a splendid work. Fresh, refreshing and full of life. There is no question of there being any tremolos in it.

Everything that looks like that is really to be played in quavers or semi-quavers, in the manner of, say, Beethoven's piano sonatas. The opening movement is powerfully orchestral, indeed Brucknerian. It brings to mind Kullervo, En Saga and the Karelia music. Sostenutos, tremolos and ostinatos play a significant role.

The movement represents Sibelius's Karelianistic pianism. The music is lyrical, sorrowful and expansive. It is interrupted twice by a quietly tinkling kantele dance marked Presto in C sharp and the F Aeolian mode. The riotous finale is based on an alternation between two motifs, one a trepak and one lyrical. It has a wild kinetic energy. The forte recapitulation of the second, lyrical motif takes the movement to a dizzying conclusion.

In the end Sibelius was able to create an unusual and virtuoso Karelian style in his sonata, which has no obvious models - though perhaps Grieg and Tchaikovsky are lurking in the background. Ten piano pieces op. This somewhat heterogeneous opus, which was composed over a long period, contains those piano pieces of Sibelius that are perhaps most popular and most frequently played.

In this opus Sibelius does not so much continue to develop the Karelian idiom as combine it with an impressive and more traditionally romantic piano style. The result is nevertheless exciting and unique.

In places the work shows interesting anticipations of Valse triste This is a dramatic love scene which opens with a duet between the treble and the middle range of the instrument. The expressive style of the movement is orchestral, even Wagnerian, although the climax also brings to mind Brahms's orchestral style. This is the most extensive movement of the opus.

It used to be part of repertoire of the pianist, Siloti. A favourite piece with a virtuoso character, bringing to mind violin techniques, even Paganini.

Concerto Program

It is based on repetitions, octaves, broken chords and rapid scale figures. As a counterbalance we hear in the middle section a simple, folk-like melody. Its syncopating accompaniment associates it with Souda, souda, sinisorsa. A Chopinesque waltz which is popular among piano students. In the middle of the piece a fierce storm breaks out, with the right hand imitating a virtuoso violin solo. In a later version the middle section is in part transposed one octave lower. A catchy, melodic miniature, which could very well exist also in an arrangement for string orchestra.

There is also another version which is very similar to the previous version.

This contains a passionate cello-like melody which rises to a splendid climax. The work would also be very well suited to a string orchestra. This work is much loved by Finnish pianists.
