In this searching account, based on a wealth of new information, James Hepokoski takes a fresh look at the work and its composer. His findings have implications beyond Sibelius himself into the entire repertory of post-Wagnerian symphonic composition. In addition to providing a descriptive analytical overview, the book also chronicles the works initial composition and subsequent revisions. It concludes with a discussion of the composers own prescribed tempos, along with a comparison of several different recordings.
