Can you hear the scent of nature?
Melody Forest is the beautiful tale of a great composer and his music. Through the media of pictures, text and music, the illustrated book will take its readers on a captivating journey back in time, into the world of Jean Sibelius. Strands of the composer’s music weave themselves into the story. In the wooded landscapes surrounding Ainola, Sibelius' home, the melody of Sprice, is heard. Over the quintessentially Finnish views from a Koli hilltop, ring out the notes of Finlandia. The journey to Europe is accompanied by the sounds of Valse triste and Souvenir. The book comes with a CD of Sibelius' music, played by cellist Jussi Makkonen and pianist Nazig Azezian. In recent years Makkonen has performed pieces cimposed by Sibelius to over 200 000 children in concerts held in schools around Finland. During 2015, 150 years from the composer’s birth, school concerts of his music will take place in Norway and the United States as well as Finland. The book is written and illustrated by Katri Kirkkopelto.
