This project report examines four solo-songs by Jean Sibelius and offers an analysis of the style of his Finnish nationalism. The paper presents two types of nationalism, and delves into the type of nationalism to which Sibelius's solo-songs belong. A brief history of Finland and the Finnish nationalist movement is discussed, in addition to the importance of the Kalevala to the Finnish nationalist movement. Musical descriptions of the poetry and songs "Demanten pa marssnön," "Flickan kom ifråm sin älsklings mote," "Var det en dröm?" and "Svarta rosor" are presented, and an acceptable performance practice for Sibelius's solo-songs is considered.
