Description

With the "Tree Suite" (Op. 75) in mind, Sibelius wrote this corresponding "Flower Suite" (Op. 85). It forms a distinctive series of worthwhile pieces.



No. 1. Bellis (Presto; 1917). "The Daisy" is a music-box-like virtuoso "Blumenstück" on the white keys. The style is that of a salon piece.



No. 2. Oeillet (Con moto; 1916). "The Carnation" is a remembrance of a ball. It was described by Erik Tawaststjerna as "the most inspired and brilliant of Sibelius's miniatures in waltz rhythm". The A flat minor variation in the middle section darkens the atmosphere a little.



No. 3. Iris (Allegretto e deciso; 1916). This is a challenging, but rewarding work for the pianist. It is both serious and poetic in its fragility and determination.



No. 4. Aquileja (Allegretto; 1917). This piece ("Aquilegia" or "Columbine") serves its purpose as a Biedermeier-style work in the manner of Edward MacDowell.



No. 5. Campanula (Andantino; 1917). "The Bellflower" rings out with its appoggiaturas and offers a bright, sparkling finale.
