Sibelius completed his final opus-number compositions, opp. 115 and 116, in 1929. Op. 115 consists of four programmatically titled pieces in which we find not only melodic lines and introverted sounds, but also virtuosic runs as well as lively rhythms, presupposing perfect ensemble playing by pianist and violinist.

Sibelius' Three Pieces for Violin and Piano, Op. 116 is also available here.

Urtext with Facsimile edited by Kirsten Beißwenger. Another edition of the cello suites? Yes, since it is more necessary than ever!
