Jean Sibelius, the hero of Finnish music

Jean Sibelius studied both piano and violin in Helsinki. The young composer first started his career as a violinist before being engrossed with the romantic repertoire, notably the symphonic tradition symbolized by Edvard Grieg and Pyotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky. After a brief stop in Berlin in order to hone his skills, Sibelius becomes a violin and musical theory professor at the Helsinki conservatory. He then receives a life-long pension from the state, so he can devote himself entirely to composition.
