Jean Sibelius (8 December 1865 - 20 September 1957) is Finland's national composer. He is also internationally the most recognized composers from the period around 1900, and he is part of Carl Nielsen (Denmark), Edvard Grieg (Norway) and Bedřich Smetana (Czech Republic) to national romantics. Sibelius was born when Finland was Russian. His music has played an important role in the formation of a Finnish national identity. Finland's major music conservatory, Sibelius Academy, one of the largest in Europe was in 1939 named after Sibelius, who had received his education there.
He is best known for the violin concerto, the seven symphonies, and his tone poems.
