During the 1890s, the young Jean Sibelius was associated with the nationalistic-cultural group Nuori Suomi, or Young Finland, which promoted Finnish distinctiveness free from the cultural dominance of Sweden and Russia. The Finnish painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela was a founding member of Nuori Suomi and enjoyed a creative friendship with Sibelius.

Despite this and the fact that, at another concert, proceedings were temporarily halted by a chirping cricket, Mary Cleveland, wife of the US consul, felt that attending all eight of Stern’s Sydney concerts “was one of the great musical experiences” of her life.
