On this week's Patreon-sponsored episode of Sticky Notes, we're exploring the amazing Sibelius Violin Concerto. To me, Sibelius' violin concerto is the greatest of all the violin concerti, but sometimes his music is considered enigmatic and confusing. So this week, we'll explore whether Sibelius' music is Finnish or not, his innovations with structure and melody, compare recordings of wildly different interpretations of the piece, and try to unlock the key to the profoundly moving music of this 20th century master. Thanks so much for listening!
