Την συγκεκριμενη συμφωνια ο Σιμπελιους δουλευε πανω απο 20 χρονια. Για ενα μεγαλο διαστημα πιστευαμε ότι όλες του οι σημειωσεις ειχαν καει απο τον ίδιο. Σχετικα προσφατα βρεθηκαν κάποιες σελιδες καιτον Οκτωβρη του 2011 δοθηκε η παγκόσμια πρωτη καποιων τμηματων της 8ης.
In October 2011, the Helsinki Philharmonic, under John Storgaards, played, for the first time, three sketches from the legendary "lost" Eighth Symphony of the great Finnish conductor Jean Sibelius.
Long though destroyed in a fireplace by the conductor himself in 1945, these sketches -- and over 800 pages of unclassified symphonic scores by the great composer, were handed over by his family to the University of Helsinki and the National Library of Finland in 1982.
This information, just made public to the English speaking world, has sent shockwaves through classical musicologists.
This is not a reconstruction. These are the actual sketches and orchestration from Sibelius original manuscript. At a minimum, these are actual works written by the great conductor after he wrote Tapiola, his last great orchestrated work and when we know he was working on the Eighth Symphony. However, some scholars now feel it is only a matter of time before we are able to reconstruct the entire symphony from his sketches.
If you are dumbfounded and do not believe what you are seeing and hearing here, here are some links. If this is true this is the greatest find of lost music in the past 100 years.
