Composed during a winter spent in Italy, Sibelius’ Second Symphony is another meditative work from the enigmatic Finnish composer.
Quiet and simple to begin with, it melts into some of his warmest music before rising to a glorious, expansive finale. Something Sibelius would later declare “a confession of the soul.”
