Soluppgång, Op 37 No 3
Lasse liten (‘Little Lasse’) is from 1902, as is Soluppgång (‘Sunrise’)—again, recent evidence has disproved the previously accepted dating. In May 1902, Sibelius spoke of his working on Tor Hedberg’s Soluppgång, which he described as ‘a slight but powerfully atmospheric poem’. And so indeed it is, and Sibelius’s setting evokes its mood with great finesse.
