In the meantime, piano experts tend to confirm Glenn Gould's view that Sibelius "made an important contribution to the slim piano repertoire of the late romantic period." With the anthology "Jean Sibelius: Piano Pieces" compiled for the Sibelius Year 2015 (150th birthday), the Finnish composer has finally made it into the ranks of the piano composers. Kari Kilpeläinen and Anna Pulkkis, the editors of the Complete Edition, have selected the most important pieces from all creative periods.
