On wednesday a plaque was to be unveiled in Berlin to commemorate Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, who lived in the city for some time.

The plaque is fastened on a house at Marienstrasse 4, where Sibeilus lived for some time while studying in Berlin from 1889 till 1890. His time in Berlin appeared to be an inspiring period. He wrote to his friend that he was "like a fish in water".
