Glenda Dawn Goss is the former editor in chief of the Jean Sibelius Critical Edition and teaches at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.
"Until now, classical music listeners have not had an adequate context in which to place Sibelius's well-known and much-performed works. With Sibelius, Glenda Dawn Goss treats us to a panoramic view of the relevant Finnish background. This is idiosyncratic music from an idiosyncratic place, and Goss provides a generous overview of both. Unabashedly interpretive, this is a comprehensive and compelling look at a major composer and the culture he both influenced and drew upon. Essential reading for all Sibelians." (James Hepokoski, Yale University)"
