Sibelius, Jean (1865 – 1957)

An excellent autograph musical quotation signed by Jean Sibelius. The composer writes out, in bold fountain pen ink, two bars of music, which he identifies as being from his great work Finlandia. He adds ‘London’ and the date, 22nd February 1909. In very fine condition. Quite desirable in this format.

Sibelius was residing in London in February and March of 1909, composing his string quartet, Voces Intimae.
