The Swan of Tuonela is the most famous of the four symphonic poems that Jean Sibelius composed under the title Lemminkäinen-Suite op. 22. It is one of the most beautiful and expressive solo pieces ever composed for English horn.
This edition aims to bring the piece into churches, where it will sound splendidly thanks to its calm style and the wide ranged melodic. With great respect for the original, no changes have been made in the English horn part. The organ part has been notated in such a way that it can basically be played on any organ, although a romantic organ with appropriate tonal and dynamic possibilities is recommended here.
