Notes & Reviews:

Sibelius's first set of Scenes historiques forms a suite taken from music for a patriotic pageant, staged in 1899 at a time of increasing Finnish nationalism and originally including 'Finlandia', which was published separately. For his 'Scenes Historiques II' Sibelius composed new music. In the opening 'The Chase', horns are heard through the mist, followed by the wild chase, with its impelling rhythms. The incidental music for Adolf Paul's play 'King Christian II', set in the 16th century, deals with the King's love of a commoner, her murder by a jealous rival and the King's bloodthirsty revenge.
