|Year/Date of Composition
||To Pekka Halonen
||Early 20th century
||Violin and Kantele
The Lullaby for violin and kantele JS 222 (11/9/1899) was printed in 1935 in the periodical Väisänen, and thus it has been generally known since then. The birthday of the writer Juhani Aho was celebrated at the home of the painter Pekka Halonen, whose mother had taught him and his brother to play some Finnish folk song tunes on five-stringed kantele (traditional stringed Finnish instrument, also common in other areas of the Baltic, and Russia). Pekka Halonen performed a Waltz, and Sibelius composed a violin part to the kantele's music.
