Internationally, Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) is Finland's most successful composer. He has been and still is a strong influence on many composers in Finland and abroad. Jean Sibelius' best-known works include Symphonies 1–7, Finlandia, Valse triste, Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47 and, drawing their inspiration from the Kalevala tradition of Finnish folk poetry, Kullervo and the Karelia Suite. The national side of the commemorative two-euro coin depicts the starry sky of Ainola and a copse of pine trees, under which Sibelius was captured in several photographs. The side of the coin dedicated to Sibelius is designed by Nora Tapper.
