One week until Season 5 of Sticky Notes! This week, we look t one of the most popular 20th century symphonies. From the moment of its premiere, this piece was given a revolutionary narrative by Finnish Nationalists looking to throw off the yoke of Russian oppression. We explore how the music supports or undermines that narrative. We also take a deep dive into the incredible thematic and motivic development that dominates this piece, making it one of the most cohesive 40 minutes of music ever devised.
