Sibelius was not discouraged. He started to write a new "symphony" - as he called the work to begin with and often even later. Sibelius took the subject matter from the Kullervo saga in Kalevala. In this a young man seduces a woman without knowing that she is his long-lost sister. Both end up committing suicide. In a letter to Aino, Sibelius wrote that he had initially discarded at least 50 themes.
He had obviously paid attention to the advice of his teacher, Goldmark, about the need to craft his themes carefully. Finally he came up with a theme that he was satisfied with.
A prototype of the main theme of the first movement of Kullervo had taken shape. The theme can be found the letter Janne sent to Aino on 18th April , even if it is still in F major. It is so different from everything that I have written so far," Sibelius wrote concerning his thematic sequence.
Two days later Sibelius wrote to Aino that Fuchs had been enthusiastic about the new Kullervo theme. Sibelius worked on the first movement for a long time. Apparently he continued to prepare it in the summer of , first on his return from Vienna to Finland and then after he settled down to compose in Loviisa during the autumn.
Right at the end of the year Sibelius acquainted himself with the art of Larin Paraske, a Finnish singer of runes, in Porvoo. At that time my travelling companion, who was five years my senior, was developing plans that would result in the symphonic poem Kullervo, which was completed and performed the following year. He was very eager to hear what Karelian runes sounded like when they were sung by a genuine Karelian singer, and I was of course glad to be able to witness this encounter between the new and the old.
I dare not speculate what it meant for the compositions the master based on Kalevala, the fact that he could listen to Paraske just then. I just remember how he followed the song attentively and wrote down the melody and the rhythms. In his old age, Sibelius told his son-in-law Jussi Snellman that he had been a good deal more sceptical. When it was completed I went with Hirn to Porvoo to see Paraske. There was not much snow on the ground but it was already very cold. At the time I had no idea what a celebrity was sitting in front of me.
In her singing I mainly paid attention to how such a 'rune singer' uses Finnish: 'murehiaa-aa-aa', 'musta lintuu-uu-uu', in other words, especially the way they prolong and stress the last syllables of a word. To my ears the stress that Paraske used sounded very strange, and I had no idea that I was dealing with such a great master, since I did not find her such an extraordinary rune singer.
In 'Kullervo' I had used a natural stressing of syllables. Later I followed Paraske's way in poems with the Kalevala metre, e. Sibelius's memory was faulty when he claimed that Kullervo had been completed before the meeting with Paraske. He returned to Loviisa for Christmas, continued to compose Kullervo and wrote down the theme for the second movement in a tender love letter that he sent to Aino on 29th December From the end of January the composing continued in Helsinki, at the Kaivopuisto bathing establishment.
At the beginning of March Sibelius decided that the choir should be a male choir. The rehearsals started at the beginning of April. Juho Ranta, who sang in the choir, recollected the events in All I can remember is that the 'official' language of the orchestra was German, most of the musicians being foreigners.
Although my skills in German are very modest, I was proud when after hearing: 'Bitte, noch einmal vom Buchstab X', I could explain to my comrades, who only spoke their own language, that we should now repeat from some point or another.
