Incidental music for the theatre is a genre in which Sibelius's outstanding abilities as a composer of large canvases for orchestra were combined with his equally well-honed talent for writing concise, sharply characterized portraits of characters or scenes. The present volume of the SIBELIUS EDITION focuses on the orchestral music that he wrote for plays and includes both the complete theatrical scores and the suites that the composer in several cases put together from these. Among the plays given the Sibelius treatment are works by famous as well as less familiar authors: from Shakespeare, Strindberg and Maeterlinck to the composer's brother-in-law Arvid Järnefelt. It was for a production of Järnefelt's drama Kuolema ('Death') that Sibelius in 1903 wrote one of his first scores for the theatre - a score which included a Tempo di valse lente that would soon make its triumphant course around the world under the title Valse triste. His last work in the genre was the music for Shakespeare's The Tempest, composed in 1925 shortly after the completion of Symphony No.7, a score that the liner notes, by Sibelius biographer Andrew Barnett, describes in the following terms: 'With its great variety of moods, seemingly endless thematic invention and sparkling orchestration, The Tempest represents the zenith of Sibelius's theatre music.'

After four previous releases, the SIBELIUS EDITION has won recognition among critics and lovers of Sibelius' music as, to quote the reviewer in American Record Guide, a set which 'constitutes the same kind of milestone as the Solti Ring cycle - a thing both unprecedented and, in its totality, unsurpassable. The rewards found on these discs will likely endure as long as recorded music itself.' As with earlier instalments, the present programme includes variant versions, a couple of them receiving their world première recordings. The performances are by the Lahti Symphony Orchestra conducted by Osmo Vänskä and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra under Neeme Järvi, with vocal soloists and choirs appearing when the scores so demands.
