Timothy L. Jackson, Professor of Music Theory at the University of North Texas, is sticking to his views that Finnish composer Jean Sibelius had Nazi sympathies. Jackson is convinced that when the Nazis took power in Germany, Sibelius made a 180-degree turn in his attitudes toward Germany’s Jewish artists and was careful not to show them any support, for fear of losing royalty payments. Jackson’s ideas sparked intense discussion when he expressed his views at the Sibelius Academy and at the Institute of Political history of the University of Helsinki.
