The aim for this project is to copy, edit and to prepare for publication the correspondence letter of Jean Sibelius and the Achté family in their original languages (mainly in Swedish) and as a Finnish translation (from Swedish). This correspondence covers about 60 letters dated between 1899 and 1936. The published version of the letters will be annotated with information found through the research work and with essays that contextualize events described in the letters.
