SIBELIUS, J.: Jokamies (Jedermann) / 2 Pieces, Op. 77 / In Memoriam (Pajala, Katajala, Söderlund, Palmu, Turku Philharmonic, Segerstam)

Rarely performed but recognised as a hidden masterpiece, Sibelius’s score for Jedermann is unusual in that the music closely follows the words and action of this morality play, intensifying Everyman’s hubris, penance, escape from the Devil’s clutches and ultimate salvation. The Two Serious Melodies reflect Sibelius’ dark mood during the difficult years of World War I, while In memoriam resonates with his preoccupation with death in 1909 following a life-saving throat operation, and was performed at his own funeral in 1957.
