dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines Jean Sibelius's first major composition, the fivemovement symphonic poem Kullervo (1892), within the context of late nineteenth-century Finnish culture. Through a culturally grounded musical analysis, the study demonstrates how the work is informed by the conflicting tendencies from Western, Eastern and specifically Finnish sources present in the surrounding culture. Such an approach is prepared first by an examination of the socio-political conditions in which the work was created. The technical analysis views each movement in the light of a different current of influence. The first movement is examined in the light of Western traditions, the second and fourth in the light of Eastern traditions and the third in the light of Finnish traditions. The co-existence of these diverse currents of influence as they relate to the definition of a Finnish national style are discussed within the context of the last movement.
