2015 is the year of Jean #Sibelius's 150th birthday, and I will share a work of his in the first week of every month. In honor of #Sibelius's centennial birthday 50 years ago in 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson dedicated the entire year as Sibelius Year:

"WE IN AMERICA celebrate this year the centennial of the birth of Jean Sibelius, the great Finnish composer. His achievement has become a part of the world's cultural heritage. Through his art, Sibelius has made an enduring contribution to the enrichment of the human spirit, and his music continues to bring enjoyment to people throughout the world. For us, as for the people of Finland, his Finlandia has become a symbol of man's indomitable will for freedom. We are therefore proud to join in doing homage to this son of Finland during Sibelius year." - LBJ, 1/1965
I believe this statement is still very relevant today.

The first Sibelius piece to be shared here (for January) is his #Finlandia, conducted by Herbert von Karajan and accompanied by a great video:
