The son of a surgeon, Finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) studied law before devoting his life to music. He composed the bulk of his work between 1980 and 1930, during which time he wrote eight symphonies. Sibelius destroyed the last before publication, but the prior seven reveal a wide range of approach in his search for a true symphonic form.
