The Complete Edition Jean Sibelius Works has made a big step forward with this volume: the publication of all piano works which the composer personally supplied with opus numbers, thus bequeathing them to posterity in an authorized form. The piano pieces with opus numbers ranging between 85 and 114 were written partly during World War I and, more importantly, during the first post-war years up to 1924. This is when for various reasons, and not only for lack of funds Sibelius once again applied himself intensively to the composition of piano pieces. The more than 40 works eloquently refute the claim that the composer had little esteem for the piano. With the little collection of op. 114, Sibelius leads us into the memorable year 1929, when he ended his compositional activity once and for all.
