Concert Overture is a 12-minute work for small orchestra. Sibelius conducted the premiere performance in Turku, Finland in April 1900. The work has not been performed since the first years of the 20th century. Concert Overture has its origins in stage work ”Jungfrun i tornet”, and is in a way hidden inside of the stage music. Conductor and scholar Tuomas Hannikainen discovered the existence of the overture during his research in 2019. He has edited and reconstructed the work.
