Jean Sibelius is widely recognized as Finland's greatest composer.  Along with his seven symphonies, he is best-known for his tone poems, especially Finlandia, the Karelia Suite, Valse triste, and The Swan of Tuonelao; and works inspired by the Finnish national epic poem, the Kalevala, such as his choral symphony Kullervo.  Throughout his career, Sibelius drew inspiration from nature and Nordic mythology, creating a musical legacy that helped foster the development of a Finnish national identity during its struggle for independence from Russia.
