Finland is, I imagine, top of the league when it comes to naming roads/streets after Sibelius. Helsinki, Lahti, well virtually everywhere (except Tampere I think - maybe Harri M can confirm?).

Shall we make a list of the streets/towns/countries, just for the record?

There is a Sibelius street in Prague, in Czech it is called Sibeliova.

Guess which ambassador's residence can be found there?

Yes, unfortunately Tampere has not used the name of Sibelius.

If you happen to be in Canada why not visit Sibelius Square, a small Park set up in the composers honour that stands in downtown Toronto.--kullervopete.

I can't believe I forgot about that, it has been some years since I've been there, last time was 1999, I think.

Just curious, Kullervopete, how did you find out about this?

Here's a picture of the center of the square:

That is a gorgeous picture Kurki, and a marvellous gesture to the local Finnish community.
I got my imf. from a little book that I keep consisting of Sibelian jottings and tittle tattle picked up over the years.--kullervopete.

How about The Sibelius Glacier in Antartica 69 degrees 55S 70 degrees 00W

A minor Planet [1405] 'Sibelius'

Tapiola Crescent in the south-Keys neighbourhood of Ottawa.

The Hotel 'Sibelius' in Prague.

Why not take the 'Sibelius' train from Helsinki to St Petersburg.

Still looking.--kullervopete.

Somehow, I always feel somehow obliged to reply to the Canadian references in this thread...

I know downtown Ottawa quite well, having been there several times, each time for several days. My most memorable visit was a week-long masterclass with the National Arts Centre Orchestra (Pinchas Zuckermann is Music Director there), with Jorma Panula as instructor. The only Sibelius piece during that week was the suite from Pelleas et Melissande.

Anyway, as for Tapiola Crescent, Good Find! Exclamation

Hi folks, thought I would revive this thread a little. I'm in Toronto this month conducting Czech music for a change with the Mississauga Symphony, an orchestra with which I have performed Sibelius' 2nd and 3rd and Aalloottaarreett (can never remember where the double letters are in that title so better safe than sorry).

Had a day off today, a little break from doing nothing, so I thought I would repay a visit to the above mentioned park. Unfortunately, it was closed and under heavy construction, the playground that is attached to it was open but that was all. Fortunately however, my father and I never allow ourselves to be discouraged by silly frivolities like signs and rules, so we entered anyway, and here is what we found!

Nice snaps kurki, you look to be enjoying yourself in Toronto. Hope that the concerts go well. By the way, I enjoyed reading your piece on Tapiola in the UK Sibelius Soc. Newsletter. Cheers, kp

Looking at the reflection in the glass... there's something black - is it a piano?
If so one could follow in JS's footsteps by improvising a waltz in the manner of Valse chevaleresque.
