Sibelius One is a society established in September 2014. Its objectives are to advance, improve, develop and maintain public education in and appreciation of the life and work of Jean Sibelius. Members come from all over the world, and Sibelius One is also committed to encouraging and supporting young people in their discovery and appreciation of Sibelius’s music. Sibelius One is a not-for-profit organization that has been established and operates according to democratic and accountable principles.

Sibelius One will publish a full-colour six-monthly magazine (inaugural issue in January 2015) and is establishing an active web presence. In addition to presenting topical items, biographical information about Sibelius and listings of his music, our website

includes a members-only area featuring a selection of articles and commentaries by various authors; there is also a large and ever-increasing catalogue of work descriptions by the Sibelius scholar Andrew Barnett, and we shall shortly be adding a complete collection of song texts and translations for his vocal music. Members are encouraged to contribute and participate in Sibelius One’s activities, and to suggest future projects. Sibelius One will organize and support concerts featuring Sibelius’s music, and members will receive significant discounts at all such events. Members are also entitled to participate in Sibelius One’s group booking at preferential rates at the annual International Sibelius Festival in Lahti.

Sibelius One is based in the UK and is administered by a five-person committee:
John Davis, President
Andrew Barnett, General Manager
Janet Abbotts, Treasurer
Paul Greenwood, Secretary
Leon Chia, International Co-ordinator

John Davis, President, describes his feelings at being named President of Sibelius One as ‘complete pride and a huge honour’, and calls the enterprise ‘totally mind absorbing’. Davis has been interested in Sibelius since the early 1940s, when his father took him into a music shop in Bristol bought him his first record – a 78 of movements from the Karelia Suite – just at the time that news was coming through of the Russian invasion of the Karelian Isthmus.

Andrew Barnett, General Manager, is the author of a major biography of Sibelius (Yale University Press, 2007). As advisor to the BIS Complete Sibelius recording project he has participated in many recordings of familiar and unfamiliar music by Sibelius. He has lectured on Sibelius frequently, notably at the ‘Sibelius in Korpo’ festival. He was a committee member and organizer of the Fifth International Jean Sibelius Conference in Oxford in September 2010, on which occasion he was awarded the Sibelius Medal.

Membership currently costs £15.00 per year (joint members [e.g. husband and wife] £20.00 per year; students/under 18s £5.00 per year). Payment can be made by bank transfer, via PayPal or by UK cheque payable to ‘Sibelius One’. The membership year begins on 1st October (members who join part-way through the year will receive an appropriate discount). Further details on

I'd like to join the association. But I have three questions.

First, is there any problem paying with euros (by paypal)? I can imagine that it isn't.

The second question is: does Sibelius One send the printed copies of the magazine to Spain? In this case, all the magazines or just the ones on the time of my joining? Rolling Eyes
