Pelleas Et Melisande

No sooner had Sibelius moved to the town of Järvenpää in 1904 than he was commissioned by the Swedish Theatre to write incidental music for Maeterlinck's Pelléas et Mélisande. At the time it was his most ambitious undertaking in the genre of incidental music and his setting included ten scenes, only one of which was cut when he adapted the piece as a concert suite. Dating from the same year, Musik zu einer Szene was originally intended to accompany a tableau and is full of striking contrasts. The two waltzes of 1921 are transcriptions of piano pieces, and reveal the potent influence of Tchaikovsky.

This is the third volume of six in this Sibelius series. The focus of this album is Sibelius's incidental music and transcriptions. The main piece, Pelléas et Mélisande, has often been recorded but is seen here in the context of his other theatrical pieces, emphasizing a different side of Sibelius as a theatre composer. Musik zu einer Szene, Op.96 is much lighter, and was also written for theatrical performance. The other small pieces, Valse Lyrique Op.96a and Valse Chevaleresque Op.96c, are transcriptions of piano originals, and are both examples of Tchaikovsky's influence on Sibelius' compositions.
