Incidental Music to Sibelius King Christian II

The King Christian II Suite is a suite composed by Jean Sibelius in 1898. The concert suite is a selection from Sibelius's own incidental music—originally composed for the Scandinavian historical play King Christian II (written by his friend Adolf Paul). The original play deals with the love of King Christian II, ruler of Denmark, Sweden and Norway, for a Dutch girl, Dyvecke, a commoner. A complete performance of the suite takes about 25 minutes.
