A book by the Italian pianist Marina Cesarale and Finnish tenor Eero Lasorla about Sibelius’s songs has been published. The book features an Italian translation of all the song texts and a brief analysis of each one. It is the first and only book on this subject in Italy , and is published by LIM (Libreria Musicale Italiana), available in bookshops since late June 2020.
Whereas there are many Italian translations available of for German Lieder, French chansons and Spanish canciones, very few exist for Northern European music. The texts are designed to help the listener or performer grasp the meaning of the poetic texts, aiming to create a correspondence between the Finnish or Swedish vocabulary and its Italian counterpart. The book includes a discography and a table of phonetics.
