Jean Sibelius, “Souvenir”

 

 

 

 

Posted here is “Souvenir,” a short piano piece by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. It was one of the composer’s Eight Pieces for Piano, Op. 99, published in 1922.

I have been trying to listen to some of the piano pieces and songs of Sibelius. I have already posted on this site his awesome work Kullervo, Op. 7, a suite of symphonic movements based on the character of Kullervo in the Finnish epic Kalevala, and (on the same post) incidental music from Sibelius’s Kuolema, Op. 44 and Swanwhite, Op. 54, all of which are posted at
