A new piece.
When Sibelius (in 1926) was asked by his publisher to explain the programme of his tone poem Tapiola
, he replied with the following verse:Widespread they stand, the Northland's dusky forests,
Ancient, mysterious, brooding savage dreams;
Within them dwells the Forest's mighty God,
And wood-sprites in the gloom weave magic secrets..
