So who was Sibelius and why did he get a park and a monument named after him? Jean Sibelius, the man behind incredible works such as Violin Concerto and Symphony No. 2, is considered Finland's greatest composer. Sibelius's music was so important to Finland during its fight for independence from Russia that his birthday is celebrated as both Flag Day and the Day of Finnish Music.
