Sibelius: Symphony No. 1, Karelia Suite, The Swan of Tuonela, Finlandia (CD)

Current Stock:
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Alexander Gibson

“The new recording on Collins by Sir Alexander Gibson (a Sibelius specialist) … is easily his best version and can hold its head high among the competition. … [T]he orchestral playing [is] thoroughly committed and involving, and is, predictably, free from eccentricities: in short, it is a performance of integrity. &hellip [The recording] is able to accommodate climaxes with greater comfort… microphone placing secures greater transparency from the strings although there is no lack of vividness and presence.”
