The concert is one of the anniversary events of Sibelius 150 jubilee year.

For expressionists, truth was more important than beauty. As post-impressionist movement, expressionism was at its most potent in the German region. The repertoire of the final concert of the Sibelius through Four Windows series comprises works of Sibelius’s German contemporaries and Finnish composers of the 1920s that provide a context for many less-known, more courageous works of Jean Sibelius. Many of these works move in the borderlines of traditional tonality, although Sibelius never actually became an atonal composer.
