Cassazione op. 6 is still regarded as a hot tip for fans of Sibelius music: both the heretofore unpublished version with full orchestra and the version with reduced scoring were given their first performances in 1904, but then receded to the back of the composers mind. Since he never picked up on the cautious hints he had made about revising the work, it is up to posterity and the text-critical work of the Complete Edition to provide the first comprehensive evaluation and the first text-critical edition of the Cassazione op. 6.
