I'm thinking about expand my Sibelius bibliography.

I have got the Tawastestjerna, Barnett, Ekman and Layton volumes.

What other books do you think that I have to buy?

English edition, of course, and not too difficult to find in web stores! I can see Gray, Törne, Santeri...

I like the Guy Rickards book a lot.

I'd say try the Santeri Levas one. It's anecdotal, to be sure, but what anecdotes! - And because the information is basically first-hand, it can't go out of critical fashion (as has arguably happened with e.g. Gray)..

Excellent suggestion. I am surprised I did not think of it myself.

I found Glenda Dawn Goss's book Sibelius: A Composer's Life and the Awakening of Finland(2009) on Amazon. She seems notable for her Sibelius research, did anyone read it?

I have her 'Jean Sibelius and Olin Downes' and also 'The Sibelius Companion' which Goss edited. Both excellent books. On the down side, I recently e-mailed her regarding a question on Sibelius and got no reply! Smile kp
