The roots of En saga, Jean Sibelius's first known tone poem, do not entirely go back to an orchestral concept. We do know that melodies from Sibelius' 1890-1891 study period in Vienna ended up in En saga. In Spring 1891 he worked on an Octet, in September 1892 he thought of a Septet, in November of a Ballet Scene No. 2. One month later he completed En saga which, by his own admission, was based on the Octet.

The arrangement as a septet by Gregory M. Barrett rests on the first version of 1892 and was given its first performance at the Brahms Hall in the Musikverein Vienna on 14 June 2003.
