    The collection Jean Sibelius 15 Selected Songs can be understood as an introduction to the Finnish composer's extensive and highly varied lieder output. Selected from various collections, the songs represent a stylistically broad spectrum. The compilation comprises only lieder that were originally written in Swedish, and provides singable German and English translations that date from the time of the first publications. The two Shakespeare Lieder op. 60 at the end of the volume were based on Swedish texts and written for a staging of the comedy Twelfth Night in Helsinki in 1909.
