  • Anyone who even once visited Finland, certainly heard about Sibeliuse. The composer's fame extends far beyond Scandinavia. Jean Sibelius was born and spent his childhood years in this small mansion built in the Empire style, urban family physician, and a family that spoke Swedish, and was of Swedish traditions. Here he child fiddled and piano, here he wrote his first musical piece. Then he wrote more than 500 pieces! At the end of his life Sibelius confessed: "I always wrote. For sixty years, I can't remember a time when I haven't been immersed in music ". The exposition of this small, mental Museum tells about the life of famous composer-worker: photographs, personal belongings and, of course, players with his magnificent music.

For a while in a hurry you forget when you delve in the music, and you wonder that you're sitting at the root of this composer's birth home. Äänentoistokin is a worthy successor to the music, not just the high end, but I think that is sufficient.
