100 Years of Finnish Freedom

2,317 words

December 6, 2017 is the 100th Anniversary of Finnish independence.

A century is not necessarily a long time for a nation state, and even less so for a people. But 100 is a nice, round number people can wrap their heads around. Much has happened since the tumultuous days of the Russian Revolution. Much of it specifically because of Russia. Indeed, a key element in Finnish independence and identity is our relationship with the rest of the world and especially Russia and Sweden.  Read more …

Tapiola:
Sibelius et le Dieu des Bois

Jean Sibelius, 1865–1957

Jean Sibelius, 1865–1957

1,437 words

English original here

Tapiola est la dernière œuvre majeure composée par Jean Sibelius. Elle fut  commandée par le chef d’orchestre de New York, Walter Damrosch, au début de 1926, et fut jouée pour la première fois le lendemain de Noël de la même année. Damrosch avait demandé un poème symphonique, le choix du sujet étant laissé au compositeur. Pour trouver l’inspiration, Sibelius se tourna, comme il le fit si souvent,  vers le Kalevala, le recueil de folklore finnois qui transparaît si souvent dans son œuvre.  Read more …

The Moderateness of the Far Right & the Extremism of Immigration

2,008 words

The changing face of the West?

The changing face of the West?

The mandated claim that mass immigration is indispensable to the cultural and economic “enrichment” of European nations is possibly the most extreme policy ever implemented in human history.

Tapiola:
Sibelius & the God of the Wood

Jean Sibelius, 1865–1957

Jean Sibelius, 1865–1957

1,361 words

French translation here

Tapiola is the last major work composed by Jean Sibelius. It was commissioned by the New York conductor Walter Damrosch at the beginning of 1926 and was premiered on Boxing Day of the same year. Damrosch asked for a symphonic poem with the choice of subject left to the composer. For inspiration Sibelius turned, as he so often did, to the Kalevala, the collection of Finnish folklore that looms so large in his work.

Sibelius & the Nazis: Anatomy of a Smear

1,285 words

French translation here

I am a great admirer of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, who along with Richard Strauss and Ralph Vaughan Williams, was one of the last generation (so far) of great European Romantic composers. Thus my attention was drawn to a  November 29, 2009 article about Sibelius in the Chronicle of Higher Education, “A Composer’s Ties to Nazi Germany Come Under New Scrutiny,” by Peter Monaghan.
